Citizen scientists conducting real scientific research in Acadia National Park

We need your help with scientific research about the bugs that live in Acadia! We want to learn how the number and types of insects in Acadia changes over the summer. We need to know this to understand the role different insects play as food for birds, bats and many other critters.  This important work will help us understand how food webs will respond to climate change.

You will work side-by-side with the biologists and University students leading this project. It’s a great way to experience Acadia in a totally different way – through the eyes of researchers looking to understand how Acadia’s food webs work. Sign up online to reserve your spot!
