|2276||Amphibian Crossings in Acadia National|
Roads often intersect the habitat between forests and wetlands, leaving migrating amphibians with no choice but to cross the road.

Herring gulls are found around the world, not only by the sea, despite often being called "seagulls". There is debate over the herring gull's taxonomic status. American ornithologists lump herring gulls in North America and Europe, while European ornithologists split them. They are often described as scavengers, though there is evidence that individual herring gulls specialize on particular food sources (intertidal, aquaculture, ocean, anthropogenic, freshwater).

In the midst of the current climate (COVID) our orbit has become smaller, but not less valuable. Limitations can bring to the surface observations that would not have been visible before. The familiar paths within the neighborhood hold unnoticed details, questions, and knowledge. Landscapes consist of natural and human shaped relics that mark human values and skills. However, the familiar sometimes feels so known that we stop observing the way new landscapes draw curiosity. Can we unlearn the knowledge that clouds our minds for new thinking? When we aim for a deeper connection with the outer we can also better understand the inner landscape. They are inseparable and by changing one - we shape both. [show more]

Exploring the Past to Build a Resilient Future To understand how climate change is affecting Mount Desert Island we need to look to the past. Our ancestors documented the natural world around them in stories, reports, journals, diaries, and letters, which are cared for in the collections of history museums and libraries. Increasingly, scientists are pulling observations and data from historic records to get a clearer picture of the natural world of the past to understand how the present is changing. [show more]

Great Duck Island is a 237-acre island 15 km south of Mount Desert Island, Maine. It served as a manned Coast Guard lighthouse post from 1890 until 1986 when it was automated. Sheep grazed the island from the late 19th century until 1951, dramatically impacting the landscape and ecology of the island. In 1985, the Nature Conservancy and the State of Maine gained control of most of the island, collaborating with the College of the Atlantic Eno Research Station to monitor the ecology of the land.
