Annual Meeting 2020 Recorded

Friends of Acadia’s Annual Meeting was held via Zoom and Facebook Live on Wednesday, July 8.

The winner of the Marianne Edwards Distinguished Service Award was awarded to Nancy Howland. The Marianne Edwards Award for outstanding accomplishments in helping Friends of Acadia and the park execute their respective missions is Friends of Acadia’s highest honor and is named for our founder and the award’s first recipient.

Other highlights of this year’s meeting include comments by Senator Angus King and an exciting announcement about Acadia National Park by Superintendent Kevin Schneider. A copy of the 2019 Annual Report is now available on our website.

You can view a full video recording of the meeting below.
