Acadia is blanketed with forests and woodlands that are situated in the transition zone of two ecoregions.
Acadia's landscape tells the tale of a time when fire and ice covered these lands.
Acadia is home to more than 20 mountains that rise from the sea and comprise much of Mount Desert Island.
Acadia protects nearly 64 miles of coastline on Mount Desert Island, Schoodic Peninsula, Isle au Haut, and other islands.
With over forty miles of rocky shoreline, Acadia possesses a tremendously rich intertidal flora and fauna.
Lakes and ponds add shimmering contrast to Acadia's forested and rocky landscape.
Acadia National Park possesses remarkably dark skies for its proximity to Portland, Boston, and New York.
All classes of wetlands (swamps, marshes, and bogs) are found within the park.
