Drawing more than 2.5 million visitors each year, Acadia is one of the ten most popular national parks in the United States. The only illustrated book officially published with the Friends of Acadia, this stunning portfolio of photographs reveals Acadia’s diverse habitats and brings home the contrasts of pounding ocean and silent coves, bald mountain summits and deep forest valleys, as never before seen.The essays convey the unseen story of Acadia: its history as a national park; the critical role of the founding families in its creation; the past and current importance of private stewardship; and its status as a unique park forged in a particular time and place in history. Acadia National Park celebrates the essence of this special place and offers a cherished journey into its past, present, and future.


Tom Blagden Jr. is a professional nature photographer and author of First Light: Acadia National Park and Maine’s Mount Desert Island, which won a 2006 National Outdoor Book Award.

REMINDER: Audubon Community Meeting – November 1st

This is to remind Seabrookers that the Audubon Community Meeting will take place on November 1st.  All Seabrookers are invited!

Stage 2 of the Audubon International Sustainable Communities Program calls for holding a series of meetings to gather input from the community for Seabrook Island’s AISCP planning process. Each meeting is designed to obtain input for specific focus areas of the program.

The first of these community meetings is scheduled for November 1st, 5:00 to 6:30 PM, in the Live Oak Hall at the Lake House. Refreshments will be served.

The meeting will begin with the AI program manager, Joanna Nadeau, giving a brief general presentation about the AISCP. Her talk will be followed by brief presentations about the three focus areas to be discussed in this meeting: Economic Development & Tourism, Education, and Governance. Attendees will then break into three groups. Each group will gather with one focus area’s champion for a 15-minute session, rotate as a group to a second focus area for 15 minutes, and then go to the third focus area for 15 minutes. The breakouts will be conducted as “brainstorming” sessions to solicit ideas, thoughts, and comments from residents of the community.

The AISCP committee will schedule additional community meetings in the coming months to address the remaining focus areas. There are a total of 17 focus areas, so four community meetings are currently planned, but this may be adjusted as the meetings proceed.

Again, please join us on November 1st from 5:00 to 6:30 PM in the Live Oak Hall at the Lake House for interesting discussion and refreshments.

If you have questions or need additional information, contact Jim Bannwart (843- 768-3835) or Carl Voelker (843-768-9297).
