Additional classes focused on mindfulness, essential oils and more are still in the works. The 2018 schedule here will be updated as new opportunities are added.

Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0, a program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, is a nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program implemented in partnership with MaineHealth. Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0 incorporates evidence-based strategies for preventing obesity with a focus on the importance of establishing healthy habits beginning in childhood.

One World…One Breath: World Tai Chi and Qiqong Day Events Set for April 28


World Tai Chi and Qigong Day has been celebrated on the last Saturday in April for nearly twenty years. On April 28, 2018, people in hundreds of communities across six continents will come together to perform tai chi and qigong at 10:00am EST, creating a circle of health and healing around the world. Healthy Acadia is pleased to announce there will be free community gatherings in Ellsworth and Blue Hill this year to mark the occasion.

The facilitators at each location are members Healthy Acadia’s Tai Chi for Health Program and certified Tai Chi for Health Institute instructors. Participants will perform slow, gentle, exercises that are appropriate for people of all ages and physical abilities. While tai chi and qigong appeal to many people simply because it feels good, the many health benefits include reducing stress while improving strength, flexibility, balance and energy.

Times and Locations:

9:30 – 11:30 Moore Community Center, 133 State Street, Ellsworth

“Taking Action on Pain” is a free, interactive program that is open to anyone who suffers from chronic pain.

  • Active and informed decision-making
  • Evaluating new treatments

“Taking Action on Pain” classes are facilitated by two Stanford University-trained leaders and offer a supportive environment for participants to provide each other with mutual support and share their successes. Evidence demonstrates that it is the highly participative process in which the program is conducted that makes it so effective. This helps increase participants’ self-assurance in their ability to manage their health and maintain active, satisfying lives.

Machias Savings Bank Helps to Build Community Health Services



Healthy Acadia’s vision is that Hancock and Washington counties are home to diverse, vibrant communities where healthful resources are available and people work together for the common good. 
                                           
 “Our goals align with Machias Savings Bank’s community giving priorities around health and wellness as well as some economic priorities,” shared Shoshona Smith, Healthy Acadia’s Development Coordinator. “We know that community members supported by a system of community health resources are less burdened by health care costs, which means that they are more able to join and strengthen the workforce and help their communities move up the economic ladder.” 

Work in the eight communities to benefit from Machias Savings Bank’s donation to Healthy Acadia will build on community health needs in each area. Program focuses include substance prevention and treatment access, Tai Chi, cancer patient navigation, youth engagement, access to physical activity, early childhood development, diabetes prevention, and healthy food access.

Machias Savings Bank’s generosity will make a big difference in our communities. According to the American Public Health Association, every dollar spent on prevention saves $5.60 in health spending. Machias Savings Bank’s donation will be used primarily for prevention services, including examples such as those shared above. This support will to create a significant reduction in costly and burdensome health challenges, and it will help all people thrive and achieve their potential.

National Park Service offers summer teacher fellowships at Acadia National Park and Saint Croix Island International Historic Site

Acadia Teacher Fellow participants learn about eelgrass monitoring.

The National Park Service (NPS) is recruiting six Acadia Teacher Fellows to spend the summer learning about Acadia National Park’s diverse natural and cultural resources, and ways to protect them. Teachers will be selected to work on Mount Desert Island and at Schoodic Point. In addition, the NPS will select one teacher to work at Saint Croix Island International Historic Site in Calais.

Acadia National Park invites full-time, K-12 public classroom school teachers to apply online by March 1 at

For more information on the Acadia Teacher Fellowship program (Mount Desert Island and Schoodic Point), please call 207-288-1312. For Saint Croix Island International Historic Site in Calais, Maine call 207-454-3871.

The Acadia Teacher Fellowship program strives to connect teachers and students to national parks. Priority is given to classroom teachers from public schools with students who are underrepresented, economically disadvantaged, or have limited access to parks. Priority is also given to teachers from Maine schools who do not requiring housing. “Many classroom teachers dream about living in and learning about our national parks,” said Superintendent Kevin Schneider. “Acadia Teacher Fellowships are helping make those dreams come true.”

For six weeks during the summer, teacher fellows will engage in a variety of activities that will vary depending on location. Teachers may interact with park visitors on public programs, along carriage roads and on hiking trails. They may attend ranger-led interpretive programs, be given place-based training, participate in citizen science activities, interact with park professionals, and much more. Teacher fellows will be asked to create a lesson plan related to Acadia’s resources to take back to their classroom and share with other educators. In addition, they will learn about turning their schoolyards into outdoor learning environments.

Newly acquired, first-hand knowledge of our national parks will enrich the teacher’s classroom curriculum throughout the school year and, in particular, during National Park Week in April during which teacher fellows can introduce a larger student audience to the important mission of the National Park Service.

Acadia Teacher Fellows will receive weekly stipends, teaching materials from Eastern National, the park’s bookstore partner, and shared park housing as available. Additional benefits include a free class field trip to Acadia or a national park site near their school, plus assistance with designing an outdoor classroom at their home school.

The Acadia Teacher Fellowship program at Acadia National Park is generously funded by Friends of Acadia. Additional funding from Dawnland, LLC has allowed the NPS to expand the program to Saint Croix Island International Historic Site.
