Organization Overview

At Schoodic Institute, our mission is inspiring science, learning, and community for a changing world. Our focus is understanding environmental change taking place in Acadia and beyond, and helping managers respond and adapt to change. Through rigorous research and strong partnerships, we develop innovative models for engaging people of all ages in science and supporting researchers and educators. We are also creating career pathways for early-career scientists, educators, and science communicators working in conservation.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we serve as Acadia National Park’s primary partner in science and education. Together, we manage the largest of 17 National Park Service Research Learning Centers.

Open year round, our 100-acre campus hosts groups of up to 125 people, and offers classrooms, labs, overnight accommodations, dining, meeting space, and a 124-seat auditorium where we bring people together for immersive educational and professional development opportunities. We invite you to visit our campus, explore the trails, and host your next event in Acadia.
