Review for Friends of Acadia, Bar Harbor, ME, USA
As a resident of Mt. Desert Island and frequent user of beautiful but cash-strapped Acadia National Park, i am often surprised at how much Friends of Acadia does to further opportunities for visitors to the Park, who numbered more than 2,500.000 people last year. FOA organizes large numbers of volunteers who maintain and groom the legendary carriage roads I walk and ski on. I marvel as I hike mountain trails beautifully restored with FOA funds. I join local friends who volunteer for FOA's annual roadside cleanup, and have served on a committee that plans walking paths from villages to mountain trail complexes. Our young granddaughter has enjoyed an FOA family day which encourages children to experience the outdoors. I read the fine Friends of Acadia Journal from beginning to end for inspiration and information. I like knowing that any contributions to FOA will be leveraged to the full through partnerships and use of volunteers to benefit so many, many people.
