Join us Tuesday, October 17th from 7pm – 8:30pm for an evening lecture with Bill Zoellick and Mike Pinkham, Community Science: Building the Capacity to Adapt to Change. This event is in conjunction with the 2023 Acadia National Park Science Symposium and will take place at Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus and online via Zoom.

Over the past six years, Gouldsboro, Maine has expanded its ability to respond to climate, demographic, and economic changes as a community. Access to scientists and data has been an essential part of that, but not the whole story – also important is how information is communicated, how people are engaged, and the financial support for communication and engagement. Presenting Gouldsboro’s experience as an informal case study, Mike Pinkham and Bill Zoellick use what they have learned in facilitating some of these changes to offer thoughts about scientists’ roles and contributions, science communication, building on existing arrangements, connecting work across communities, and more.

Hosted by Schoodic Institute and the National Park Service, the Acadia National Park Science Symposium provides a forum to learn about science taking place in the region and to interact and build collaborations with scientists, educators, students, park staff, and others working in a range of fields.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “Restoration in Acadia National Park and Beyond,” featuring the work of scientists who are working on restoration projects in Acadia National Park and beyond. This year’s agenda includes three days of science. The symposium will take place in-person at Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus and online via Zoom (this virtual option is open to speakers and attendees alike). Please note that there will be on-site housing available. Lunch will be included in registration. Learn more about the symposium here.
