The Acadia National Park Science Symposium was held on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Over 100 people attended the event held at The College of the Atlantic – many being students with an interest in research and science in Acadia National Park.
A special session focused on the Second Century Stewardship program. Five SCS fellows took part in a panel discussion after presenting information on their individual research. Schoodic Institute Forest Ecology Director Nick Fisichelli moderated the panel. Watch the presentations HERE.
Attendees had the privilege of hearing from Second Century Stewardship founder and supporter, David Evans Shaw. Shaw shared remarks about the importance of science and research in national parks across the country, advancing science and engaging with audiences of all ages – not just those who visit national parks, but all people, each of whom has a share in protecting and preserving our nation’s natural places and maintaining the vital health of our air, soil and water.
The SCS project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous donation of David E. Shaw.
