Second Century Stewardship: Science for America’s National Parks announces availability of research fellowships

The partners of the Second Century Stewardship: Science for America’s National Parks announce the availability of research fellowships to support research in Acadia National Park. Second Century Stewardship (SCS) was founded in 2016 by Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, the National Park Service (NPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the David Shaw Family Foundation. SCS seeks to advance conservation and ecosystem science and support stewardship of park resources. The selected Research Fellows will contribute to strengthening and broadening public understanding of the importance of science for parks and society.
