Video: Family Fun Day inspires kids & families to explore the outdoors

More than 400 kids, parents, grandparents, and others enjoyed glorious weather and a fabulous afternoon of outdoor activities at the 8th annual Family Fun Day at Sieur de Monts in Acadia National Park. Twenty-plus activities introduced families to just some of the fun activities and fascinating science that Acadia National Park offers, including rock climbing, carriage rides, geocaching, fly fishing, camping, plus Acadia’s glacial history, native plants, cool aquatic insects and other native creatures, and much more.

Comments from attendees young and old alike suggested it was a terrific day for all. The father of one family visiting from Pennsylvania stopped on his way to the bus at the end of the day to tell event staff that it was one of the best events his family had ever attended, and he was grateful that it took place while they were here. Photographs from the day are on Friends of Acadia’s Facebook page.
