The Natural History Center is committed to working toward a goal of economic, environmental, and social sustainability. We take this responsibility seriously, constantly striving to improve by:

  • Remaining open year-round, serving as a resource for residents, and contributing toward improving the economic vitality of Bar Harbor as a year-round community.
  • Reducing our carbon footprint in numerous ways, including striving to use the free, propane-powered Island Explorer bus service as appropriate.

  • Selling locally made, fair trade, and wildlife-friendly products whenever feasible.
  • Scheduling most programs for our local environs.
  • Adhering to the principle of reduce, reuse, recycle.
  • Incorporating concepts of sustainability into all of our programs and publications.
