The work they do in and for the park is so essential to keeping it attractive and usable for visitors, plus, they make a lot of information available to help people find their way around the park and to find interesting things to do in the park that will suit them. Besides, Acadia is an awesome park! Also, their fundraising outreach is tasteful, respectful and informative.

This organization does so much for one of the finest parks in the country! No matter your age or your mobility, there is so much beauty to see and activities to enjoy. Truly accessible and the Friends of Acadia help it be so by their partnership with ANP.

Not just Acadia National Park, but the entire island would be incomplete without Friends of Acadia galvanizing people from everywhere to volunteer to keep our Acadia beautiful and safe. My daughter who is a senior in high school is planning on majoring in business management because she wants to be a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization such as Friends of Acadia.

Friends of Acadia members do an AMAZING job making improvements to our beautiful Acadia National Park. We especially appreciate the hard work they do to help to maintain and even BUILD new trails in the park. What a gift they are to ANP!

I have tried to visit ANP yearly since moving back to New England in 1998. It is a wonderful experience, and programmed activities only add to the natural value of the Park. Without assistance from FOA, this park could not operated at the high quality that it does, and it would surely be showing significantly more signs of wear and tear from the heavy traffic it receives.
