Acadia National Park
The purpose of this project was to protect Acadia National Park’s night sky through quantitative and qualitative analysis of the Mount Desert Island lightscape. The Project updated the park’s external lighting inventory, performed a lighting audit of Southwest Harbor, and completed an application to gain international dark sky recognition for Acadia National Park. The project culminated in providing Acadia National Park with a completed provisional International Dark-Sky Association application as well as presenting the findings of our lighting audit at the Southwest Harbor library.
