Your generosity creates impact.

Global environmental change has local impacts that affect our livelihoods, our health, and our heritage. Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park is helping national parks, communities, and society adapt to change by promoting environmental stewardship and enhancing people’s sense of place.

We need your help to fulfill our mission and achieve our vision. Help us conduct critical research about how national parks, communities, and society can adapt to environmental change. Help us integrate research with hands-on education programs for people of all ages. And help us build partnerships of discovery and learning across natural and social science disciplines.

Your donation contributes to natural resource conservation and the health and prosperity of our communities. Join Schoodic Institute in its efforts to keep the world beautiful and healthy for generations to come. Donate online, or contact Susi Acord, 207-288-1360 or

On behalf of everyone at Schoodic Institute, and all those we serve, thank you!
