Acadia lovers to ‘Take Pride’

ACADIA NAT’L PARK – Friends of Acadia will hold its 23rd Annual Take Pride in Acadia Day on Saturday, November 2nd from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Every year, hundreds of volunteers take to the park with rakes to clean out drainage ways and prepare Acadia’s 44 miles of historic carriage roads for winter. This effort contributes valuable assistance to maintenance crews, and reduces carriage road erosion from the rains, ice, and thaws during winter and spring.

Participants should bring gloves, a rake, and water.

Each volunteer will receive a Take Pride in Acadia Day fleece hat. A free lunch of chili, cornbread, cake, and cider will follow the morning’s work. During lunch, participants in the Acadia Quest program will be recognized and a grand-prize drawing will take place.

Take Pride in Acadia Day is a free community event, but registration is required. Please contact Terry Begley at 207-288-3340 or [email protected], or see for more information.
