Abstract

A greenhouse gas emission inventory was conducted at Acadia National Park to explore the impact of park operations, concessionaires, and visitors. Acadia contains fragile ecosystems that are endangered by the effects of climate change from greenhouse gas emission. The purpose of the inventory is to determine Acadia’s carbon footprint and provide mitigation strategies for its greatest contributors. With this report, the goal is to help Acadia increase its environmental sustainability and attain the status of a Climate Friendly Park.
