Second Century Stewardship

The Second Century Stewardship collaboration between Schoodic Institute and the National Park Service at Acadia National Park aims to:

  • Advance conservation science and provide science that informs stewardship of natural and cultural resources by expanding scientific research programs in parks;

  • Strengthen and broaden public understanding of the value of parks for science and science for parks and society by building on the positive public perception of national parks;

Enhance science understanding and appreciation among the public by leveraging park science for education and public outreach.

Second Century Stewardship is an example of how partners in science work together to conduct scientific research in Acadia National Park that helps us better understand the park and how to manage it.
