What are the driving forces behind the enthusiasm of early-career environmental science professionals? Join us virtually on Wednesday, October 11th from 10am – 12pm for the 2023 Acadia National Park Science Symposium opening event and gain insight from their perspectives as they share their inspirations in a series of 5-minute lightning talks. Attend online via Zoom.

This event is in conjunction with the 2023 Acadia National Park Science Symposium. 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.

If you are interested in participating in this presentation and sharing your early-career insights, please contact Catherine Devine at cdevine@schoodicinstitute.org.
