Biodiversity in Acadia, Today and Tomorrow
Acadia’s forests, lakes, and coasts are changing. They are already measurably different than they were when the park was created in 1916. Plant and animal species have been lost and others have arrived. And the pace of change is speeding up. On the evening before Birds, Bugs, Birches, & Barnacles, Dr. Abe Miller-Rushing will present the latest science on what has changed, what changes park managers expect in the future, and actions park managers taking to keep Acadia’s ecosystems as healthy as possible during this time of transition. He will also discuss the essential role that the public—and you—can play in helping to keep Acadia healthy.
