Review for Friends of Acadia, Bar Harbor, ME, USA
We first learned about Friends of Acadia when we retired and now spend six months in the Acadia area. We were drawn to FOA by all the volunteer support that gravitates to FOA. Much of the volunteer effort helps maintain Park trails, Park roads and financial support. We were interested in the development area and fund raising to help support the Park, as federal funds are not sufficient. The most known form of support is the transportation system of propane powered busses. These busses transport people free of charge anywhere in the Park and surrounding areas. The use of the bus system reduces the number of autos driven in the Park, thus reducing the carbon monoxide in the atmosphere. All is not work, as the annual gala party held in August is a wonderful dinner and fund raising auction that helps bind the energetic group of generour volunteers.
