One of the reasons I live in this area is Acadia National park-its beauty and resources.My work reflects the national park in the studies of the Acadia Mountains and also my paintings of different types of trees. The paintings of the houses of my neighbors reflect the effects of climate and the wear and tear of living near the ocean.I work in a variety of media including pastel, colored pencil, and acrylic.  Workshop on 
Aug 25 using colored pencils.  We will learn about some of the technique involved in the media such as burnishing and blending. We will create cards to Acadia in this media and put it on a website for the national Park.

posted Jun 8, 2016, 11:21 AM by BHML Librarian

On Thursday, June 16th at 5pm, Mike Hays will present "If Not Us, Then Who?" about the history of the volunteer effort in Acadia National Park. 

One of the most visible aspects of Acadia National Park are the large numbers of volunteers working on the hiking trails and the carriage roads. But how did this outpouring of enthusiasm develop and how has it changed over time? These and other topics are the subject of the program "If Not Us, Then Who?" presented by Mike Hays, a Volunteer in the Park since 1995, and a Volunteer Crew Leader since 2004. The program presents the volunteer effort within the context of the history of Acadia National Park and the larger American historical perspective.
