At the dawn of the second century for the US National Park Service (NPS) and Acadia National Park (ANP), the opportunity exists to more powerfully engage science for the benefit of parks and society. More than 400 parks in the US national park system attract more than 300 million visits annually. These parks provide a remarkable platform for public engagement in science.

The Second Century Stewardship collaboration between AAAS, Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, NPS, and other institutions aims to:

Advance conservation science and provide science that informs stewardship of natural and cultural resources by expanding scientific research programs in parks;

Strengthen and broaden public understanding of the value of parks for science and science for parks and society by building on the positive public perception of national parks;

Enhance science understanding and appreciation among the public by leveraging park science for education and public outreach.

The Second Century Stewardship partnership was announced and launched on June 25, 2016.
