Little Moose Island, along with Schoodic
Island, is one of the most unique and fragile places in the region
with its easy accessibility and its large numbers of nesting birds.
Located directly off the southern coast of Schoodic
Peninsula in Acadia National Park,
it has a special mix of plant life including coastal bogs, exposed
heath lands, and thick stands of spruce and pine.
From the park road on the eastern side of Schoodic Peninsula you can
see the island's tall red granite cliffs often covered with a variety
of birds. This makes for a beautiful sight particularly at sunset when
it is illuminated in a golden glow.
During low tide, a land bridge appears allowing access to the island
by foot. However, please be cognizant of the low and high tide times
and always respect the delicate nature of this place. Even passing
boats can disturb the natural bird behavior.
