ACADIA NAT’L PARK — In celebration of Acadia’s second birthday in its second century, Friends of Acadia (FOA) is partnering with park officials, area historians, and some of Mount Desert Island’s most venerable lodging establishments to do a series of live broadcasts on Sunday, July 8, Acadia Day.
On that date in July 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation formally accepting the gift of land for Sieur de Monts National Monument that would eventually become the nucleus of today’s Acadia National Park.
The Skrocki Charitable Foundation has issued a challenge grant and will match all donations made on July 8, up to the challenge amount.
