PORTLAND — Environment Maine this afternoon applauded the President for recognizing the value of and need to protect Acadia National Park and other prized places in his America’s Great Outdoors report released Wednesday. The report highlights findings from the administration’s listening sessions in Bangor this summer and across the country, where the public was asked for suggestions on how to protect the places they value most.

“With more than 100,000 people from around the country weighing in, and thousands of people attending listening sessions supporting America’s Great Outdoors, it’s clear that people love places like Acadia National Park,” said Nathaniel Meyer, field associate with Environment Maine. “We are thrilled to see the administration taking interest in protecting the places Americans care about most.  After all, one of the most prominent is here in Maine.”
