Acadia National Park protects and preserves outstanding scenic, natural, scientific, and cultural values for present and future generations through programs, facilities, and services. It also provides opportunities for non-consumptive resource-based recreation and education for an increasingly urban population.
Acadia is one of fifty-nine national parks administered by the National Park Service, established to protect important aspects of the American heritage.
Acadia National Park is celebrating its centennial by collaborating with organizations and businesses, local residents, and area communities. Acadia is partnering with Friends of Acadia and the Acadia Centennial Task Force to encourage broad participation across Maine in centennial product development, marketing, event creation, and support in celebrating Acadia through the many venues around the park.
From museums to libraries to schools to restaurants and community gardens, everyone inspired by Acadia is being invited to participate. Acadia will celebrate the many gifts that created the park with special centennial ranger-led programs, activities, and events in the park. We hope that the state will celebrate by showcasing Acadia—New England’s first National Park.
