ACADIA NATIONAL PARK — Acadia National Park is celebrating National Park Week with ranger-led walks, nature discussions and children’s programs.

The theme of this year’s park week, which runs from today through next Sunday, is “Healthy Parks, Healthy People,” with a focus on the connection between public lands and public health.

In Acadia, rangers will lead nature outings that include a bird walk, a geology walk and a walk on Otter Point.

At the Schoodic Education and Research Center in the Schoodic Peninsula section of the park, rangers will hold two children’s programs during the week, along with a discussion about Earth Day and the impact of the environmental movement.
