Example: What hardening a resource against rec impact looks like at Acadia National Park

Observe the basalt/granite stone steps sourced from local material. Also observe the custom-built boardwalk (raised wooden) stairs. Both are used all across the national park by Acadia National Park’s management team to physically separate 2+ million annual visitors’ feet from the fragile subalpine, shoreside lenses of thin, acidic spruce & fir needle-based soils.
