Acadia National Park
The night skies of Acadia National Park, and the nocturnal ecosystems that depend on them, are threatened by light pollution. This project seeks to actualize Acadia’s Night Sky Initiative; to measure, promote, and protect the natural night sky. The team measured and analyzed the brightness of the sky throughout Acadia and surrounding communities. The team enhanced the park’s ability to promote the night sky by consolidating and expanding existing information regarding the night sky for park officials and the general public. The team also analyzed the feasibility of Acadia becoming an International Dark Sky Park
