Acadia National Park’s outdoor classroom

In this Borealis story, budding scientists and explorers arrive at the Schoodic Peninsula, the mainland part of Acadia National Park, to embark on an exciting adventure called the Schoodic Education Adventure, or SEA Program for short.

Outdoor classroom learning through the SEA Program extends the park's mission of conservation and engagement by turning Maine students into citizen scientists. It's one of the longest running programs of its kind, and the students' research on invasive green crabs in tidepools will go on to support research done by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute.

Follow along on their sleepaway adventure by the sea, and learn something about this stunning Maine coastal ecosystem along the way.
