The Department of the Interior may make certain technical and limited revisions to the permanent boundaries of the park.

Interior shall reestablish and appoint members to the Acadia National Park Advisory Commission.

Certain land in the park that was conveyed by Interior to the town of Tremont, Maine, shall no longer be used exclusively for school purposes, but for public purposes, subject to specified conditions.

Interior shall allow for the traditional taking of marine species, marine worms, and shellfish on land within the park between the mean high watermark and the mean low watermark in accordance with the laws of the State of Maine.
