Review for Friends of Acadia, Bar Harbor, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been associated with Friends of Acadia for more than 20 years in a volunteer capacity, most specifically helping with their benefit each summer to raise funds to support Acadia National Park. Their work to preserve this national treasure is unsurpassed. FOA also partnered with the Garden Club of Mt. Desert (of which I was President 2009-1010) and the Maine Natural History Observatory to publish "The Plants of Acadia National Park" in 2010, a field guide presenting 862 scientific descriptions of plants in the Park, which is used by botanists and visitors alike. The guide is in its second printing. I have never worked with more a more dedicated and professional staff than that of FOA. Their work is vital to the maintenance and care of one of our country's most beautiful national parks.
