WINTER HARBOR – Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park hosts the 7th annual Acadia Winter Festival, February 4-7, 2021. This year’s festival offers fun outdoors and online activities for adults, children, families and friends.

Explore the natural world in winter with presentations about our changing winter season, seasonal affective disorder, and climbing Mount Everest.

Acadia National Park rangers present youth programs on the winter world of the park and the spines of the porcupine.

Experience nature through a ski or snowshoe trip with Acadia Superintendent Kevin Schneider and Schoodic Institute President and CEO Nick Fisichelli, or viewing the night sky, or “snowga” with Maine yoga adventures, or walks focused on birds, forests, and mindfulness.

The Winter Festival is an opportunity for the public to experience the Schoodic Institute Research Learning Center campus within Acadia National Park. All events are free but registration is required. Due to COVID-19 health and safety precautions, participation is limited for outdoors activities.
