In the Field
Join the Natural History Center in one of our many programs in the field. We offer a wide array of experiences for all ages and interests.

Search for birds both common and elusive, take a walk in the Park with our seasoned naturalists, or explore the mysteries of Maine’s tidepools. Learn about the natural and cultural heritage of Acadia National Park on a sightseeing tour following the historic Park Loop Road. For the more adventurous, search for Peregrine Falcons or Snowy Owls as you hike or snowshoe along the summit trails of Acadia’s mountains, look for Spruce Grouse while bicycling the Carriage Trails, or find Harbor Seals from the cockpit of a sea kayak.

Sign up for a regularly scheduled tour (download the PDF of our fall 2013 tour schedule), or work with us to create your own customized experience. We cater our tours to your needs, regardless of age or physical ability. All tours are personal and interactive with a maximum of 6 participants (with advance notice, we can accommodate larger groups).
