As a huge fan of Acadia National Park in Maine, I try to keep updated on news from the park. The non-profit conservancy Friends of Acadia “preserves, protects, and promotes stewardship of the outstanding natural beauty, ecological vitality, and distinctive cultural resources of Acadia National Park and surrounding communities for the inspiration and enjoyment of current and future generations.” It’s a great organization that is working to preserve a place of natural beauty that is very close to my heart. If you’re going to be in the area of Bar Harbor, ME on either August 22 or September 13, I highly suggest you reserve a spot.
Friends of Acadia is offering van tours of the Schoodic District of Acadia National Park on Saturday, August 22, and Sunday September 13, 2009. Come hear more about the resort development proposed for the 3,200 acres adjacent to the park, the natural resources of the region, and efforts to preserve this land. If you would like to attend, please contact Stephanie Clement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
