Friends of Acadia has over 4,000 members from all over the world. We rely on tax-deductible gifts from our members to fund important ongoing projects and new initiatives to preserve and protect Acadia National Park and the communities that surround it on Mount Desert Island.
Annual memberships begin at $35. Membership funds make the following accomplishments possible:
- Finance the propane-powered Island Explorer bus system and develop the Acadia Gateway Center, the planned off-island transportation hub
- Organize thousands of volunteers who work more than 10,000 hours in the park and surrounding communities each summer
- Fund a forward-thinking water quality monitoring program at Jordan Pond, Maine’s clearest lake
- Award$23.7 million since 1986 in grants to the park and surrounding communities for conservation and preservation projects
Centennial Membership: in celebration of the Acadia Centennial in 2016, you can be a Centennial Member with a gift of $100 or more. You’ll get a special “Centennial Member” decal and the satisfaction of being a part of protecting Acadia National Park as it begins its second century.
