Before Acadia: Adventure and Discovery Cruise

Date: Sunday Aug 21, 2016
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.


Join the Mount Desert Island Historical Society, Dorr Museum of Natural History, and Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company on a cruise of the eastern coast of Mount Desert Island. Program speakers will describe the many adventures and discoveries of the Champlain Society, a group of young men who camped and studied on MDI in the late 19th century. Their work was a catalyst for the founding of Acadia National Park in later years. This sunset cruise will take passengers to both camp sites of the Champlain Society in Northeast Harbor.
