The Second Century Stewardship Fellowship launched earlier this summer with the intent to promote scientific research at national parks. This year the effort brought research fellow Abbey Paulson to Acadia National Park to study its ecosystem and biodiversity. The partnering organizations (National Park Service, Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, and AAAS) hope to continue this program long-term by awarding three high-profile fellowships and expanding onto other parks across the nation.
