WINTER HARBOR, Maine — Acadia National Park is hosting a winter festival featuring Dutch oven cooking, snowshoeing and a traditional baked bean “suppa.”

The festival runs from Friday to Sunday at the nonprofit Schoodic Institute in Acadia National Park.

The Schoodic Institute’s mission is to expand the traditional role of a national park as a vacation hotspot into a regional and community site of research and education.

The Schoodic Education and Research Center is one of 19 such centers established by the National Park Service nationwide.

Other activities include a bird tour, a winter ecology hike, historic films and storytelling.
