NPS Acadia Partners

In 2009 the Connell Lab participated in an outreach effort with Acadia National Park located on Mount Desert Island along the beautiful coast of Maine. Participants learned about ongoing research and methods including phytoplankton sampling and monitoring for harmful paralytic shellfish toxins. The Partners in the Park Program is an outdoor experiential learning program sponsored by Southern Utah University and Cedar Breaks National Monument in cooperation with the National Collegiate Honors Council.


Visit the Partners in the Park website for 2012 excursions and how to get involved.
