Acadia NP gets approval to restore Big Meadow

Acadia National Park in Maine has been given the go-ahead to move forward with restoration work on Great Meadow, a 116-acre wetland impacted by culverts, abandoned railbeds, and invasive species.

Great Meadow, the largest freshwater wetland complex in the park, is one of the most-visited sites in the park. However, historic uses of the area and current uses impact its functioning, the National Park Service noted last spring in an environmental assessment that examined the problems and proposed solutions.
