2022 George B. Dorr Society Meeting
The George B. Dorr Society for Planned & Estate Gifts
A planned or estate gift is one of the most impactful ways to support Friends of Acadia’s work to preserve and protect Acadia National Park now and for generations to come.
Members and friends who have documented provisions for Friends of Acadia in their estate plans are recognized through the George B. Dorr Society. And we’re thrilled to report that in 2022 that number grew by 13 to a total of 122 member families!
In July 2022, George B. Dorr Society members came together for the 18th annual gathering of the society, which was a celebration to recognize society members and a chance to fete Acadia’s trails and induction of the Acadia trail system into the National Register of Historic Places.
Long-time Trail Foreman Gary Stellpflug (now retired) and Cultural Resource Program Manager Gail Gladstone talked about the long process to gain the recognition, along with fun facts about Acadia’s trail system. Superintendent Kevin Schneider also joined the gathering to share the good news on the state of the park and thank society members for their contributions to Acadia’s success. THANK YOU!
