You can join family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to collect a winter's worth of trash and debris from roadsides on Mount Desert Island and Trenton. According to Friends of Acadia Conservation Manager Paige Steele "Participating in the cleanup is a great way to take pride in your community, get outside and celebrate Spring, FOA-Style!"

Volunteers collect the trash and bag it, which is later picked up by Maine Department of Transportation crews.

To be assigned to a cleanup location, please register online before Sunday, April 22nd. For groups of 10 or more contact dana@friendsofacadia.org or call 207-288-3934
