COA’s Opening Reception for Acadia: The Best Classroom


Date: Tuesday Jun 21, 2016
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Description:

College of the Atlantic’s George B. Dorr Museum of Natural History will open for the 2016 season with a reception to celebrate COA’s close connection to Acadia National Park. The Dorr has created a museum-wide special exhibition to highlight decades of student- and faculty-led research projects, and added a full-size diorama of peregrine falcon mounted on a two-story rock face simulating Acadia’s Champlain Mountain. A touch-tank exhibit, designed as part of a student project, will focus on Acadia’s intertidal areas and the challenge of balancing conservation with access, while herbarium specimens from the 1890 collection of an original member of the Champlain Society—a group of young men from Harvard who spent their summers on the island, studying plants, birds, insects, fish, geology, hydrology, and meteorology—will be on display.

Location: George B. Dorr Museum of Natural History on COA's Bar Harbor campus.
