This lecture is the second in a three-part series that Downeast Audubon, in partnership with Blue Hill Heritage Trust are sponsoring to focus on the Acadia National Park Centennial.

Born on the island and having survived the 1947 fire, Jack has a great understanding of the origins of Acadia, in what ways it has influenced land conservation and how it has enriched our communities. Currently, he is co-chair of the Acadia Centennial Task Force.

There will be a reception at 6:30 and the lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m.
