Join us on Tuesday, October 19, at 4 p.m. via Zoom, when Schoodic Institute Ecology Technicians present posters of selected research conducted during the 2021 season.

Technicians are recent college graduates who spend the field season (June through October) assisting with and leading a variety of research projects in Acadia National Park and the surrounding region. They work with the National Park Service, partner organizations, and citizen scientists, gaining experience with a diversity of field sampling methods, scientific approaches, and research questions. These posters represent just a sliver of their efforts inspiring science, learning, and community for a changing world.
