The purpose of this project was to collect audio recordings of Acadia National Park. With these recordings, the team designed an archive that makes the recordings accessible to the general public. The audio recordings include important sounds that are signature to Acadia. These “sound marks” illustrate the unique attributes of the park to the general public. This project is of importance to groups that do not have direct access to the park. Researchers and artists who are looking for sound clips to capture and display the history of Acadia can find use in this archive. It will preserve and present the natural sounds and environment of Acadia National Park for many generations to come.
