MOUNT DESERT ISLAND — On June 30 in the back of the Terramor Outdoor Resort lodge, set inside a lean-to timber frame, the evening sun beams through floor-to-ceiling windows as two curious visitors gather around a stone fireplace with beer glasses in hand. They have come to listen to this week’s featured presentation for Pints for a Purpose, a new partnership program between Friends of Acadia and Terramor.

Every Thursday until Sept. 22, a new speaker will spotlight the history and principal organizations of Mount Desert Island at the glamping destination. A dollar from every beer bought during the event from 6-7 p.m. will go to Friends of Acadia, the nonprofit helping to preserve Acadia National Park.

FOA Director of Development Lisa Horsch-Clark begins her talk about the founders of Acadia with a simple question.

“Who started Acadia National Park?”
