Giving & Membership

You can be a Friend of Acadia

The first US national park created entirely by private donations of land, Acadia today is protected and enriched by the members, donors, and volunteers of Friends of Acadia. From the cobblestone beaches to the spectacular night skies, and on every inch of the historic hiking trails and carriage roads—all of Friends of Acadia’s accomplishments start with the dedication of members and donors like you.
