National Trails Day Celebration

Saturday, June 3, 8:30am – 12:00pm

Trenton Elementary School

Help celebrate the beginning of the trails and carriage roads volunteer season on National Trails Day! We will debut a special community trail this year with Trenton Elementary School’s brand new outdoor classroom, which enables students to learn about Acadia in the outdoors. Light refreshments will be served and remarks will be made, followed by staff and volunteers improving the new trails that connect the school to the outdoor classroom. Tools, gloves, and training are provided. Event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Paige at Friends of Acadia, 207-288-3340 or

If you are interested in volunteering on the trails and carriage roads during the rest of the year, please visit for more information.
