ACADIA NATIONAL PARK Friends of Acadia celebrated National Trails Day on Saturday, June 6, with a group of volunteers working on Acadia National Park’s trails.

Volunteers from Maine, Nebraska and North Carolina brushed back blueberry bushes and cleared drainages on the east side of Jordan Pond Path. This trail is very popular with visitors during the summer and needed some preparation for the busy season. This was also the first event for the new ANP Volunteer Coordinator, Dianna McKeage, whom the park welcomed this spring. Look for a bigger event for National Trail’s Day in 2016 during the Acadia Centennial.
