Schneider, Collins to talk about the future of Acadia

BAR HARBOR — Acadia National Park Superintendent Kevin Schneider will talk about the future of the park with College of the Atlantic President Darron Collins at “Coffee and Conversation: Acadia National Park in the 21st Century” in COA’s Thomas S. Gates Jr. Community Center on Tuesday, July 12, at 9 a.m. Coffee and Conversation is free and open to the public.

The 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park brings with it not only a chance to look back on the rich history of the area, but an opportunity to explore the many challenges and opportunities that the next century will bring.

COA’s Coffee and Conversation Series spans the cultural, political and social issues shaping our world. Guest speakers include writers, scientists, business leaders and artists. Conversations take place weekly at College of the Atlantic’s Eden Street campus through August.

During the summer of 2016, a number of Coffee and Conversation events will focus on Acadia National Park in celebration of the 100th anniversary of its founding. Since the creation of College of the Atlantic in 1969, the COA community has enjoyed a rich, collaborative relationship with the park, conducting myriad research projects within its borders, working with planners, rangers and scientists, developing interpretive exhibits, studying arts and humanities and utilizing our interdisciplinary educational approach to train the next generation of conservation leaders.
