Watersheds, as defined by the United States Geological Survey, are areas of land where precipitation collects and drains out through a common outlet. The ecological stability of these natural drainage systems are extremely delicate and easily disrupted, especially when exposed to human influence. Within Acadia National Park, it was found that the Marshall Brook Watershed is undergoing changes hazardous to Acadia’s ecological health. To aid in the identification of these problems, specific locations were documented using common photographic techniques to establish a baseline for future repeat photography in the area. Data gathered from repeat photography studies can then aid future conservation efforts the Park will conduct in the Marshall Brook Watershed.
