BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) - The National Park Service has awarded fellowships to three scientists to conduct research at Acadia National Park.

The fellowships are part of Second Century Stewardship, which is an initiative of the park service, National Park Foundation and Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park.

The Schoodic Institute says the initiative was created during the park service’s centennial in 2016 to help provide research for park stewardship.

David Shaw, founder of Second Century Stewardship, said the program has “compelling and far reaching implications for smart, science-based stewardship of our natural world.”
