Seeing the Forest and The Trees
The forests of Acadia contain a diversity of tree species that are habitat for an assortment of wildlife and birds. On Wednesday, August 17, 2016 Nick Fisichelli, Schoodic Institute Forest Ecology Director, presented an interesting and informative lecture about the trees found in Acadia, how these woods have changed over time and what the future has in store for this tremendous resource. If you missed Fisichelli's talk, you can watch it in it's entirety by clicking on the video above.
Mark your calendar and click HERE for an important workshop led by Richard Jagels, University of Maine, on Saturday, October 22, 2016,
from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
In this workshop, participants will explore how trees evolved over time and how they developed
physiological and bio-mechanical adaptations to fill so many ecological and climatic niches. When wildlife sightings may be scarce, knowing how to 'read' the trees can greatly increase our enjoyment in the woods, or even our backyards.
