Second Century Stewardship

National parks are amongst the treasures of the United States, valuable both in their own right as entities for preserving the natural and cultural history of our nation and the world and for the experiences they offer to their visitors. As the parks enter their second century, scientists are eager to renew the collaboration they have shared with park staff and visitors over the past hundred years and to expand on it in the years to come.

To facilitate this process, AAAS, in partnership with Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park in Maine, the National Park Service, and other organizations, has developed an initiative, Second Century Stewardship, to explore the scientific fodder found in America’s national parks. Read more HERE.
