During this most challenging year filled with uncertainty and change, Friends of Acadia has worked closely with Acadia National Park and our partners to be resilient, adapt our programs when possible, and ensure that the park is well cared-for and access is as safe as possible. Friends of Acadia has continued to provide a stable source of funding and other resources to the park. With your support, we have found creative ways of keeping our work mission-focused and strong, while keeping members connected. Some highlights from this summer:

  • We worked closely with Senator King and our delegation to advocate for the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act which will bring milestone federal support for Acadia.
  • Together with partners, we advanced Phase 2 of the Acadia Gateway Center, to help manage traffic and improve the visitor experience as part of the park’s new transportation plan.
  • FOA, park staff, and partners made significant advances in natural resource protection program with the continued restoration of Acadia’s watersheds, the management of invasive plants, and improvements to fish passageways.
  • We expanded and adapted our youth engagement programs to integrate virtual classes, developed Nature Kits for local students, provided funding for Acadia Mobile Rangers, and increased grants to area schools for outdoor classrooms.

This important work of strengthening Acadia and the lives touched by it happens because of your ongoing support. We appreciate all that you do for Acadia and ask that you consider supporting FOA’s continued efforts with an Annual Fund gift.
