Acadia National Park will be celebrating it's centennial in 2016, and yesterday, May 12th,  Acadia National Park in conjunction with the Friends of Acadia unveiled the Centennial Logo.

In introducing the logo, Acadia Centennial Task Force co-chair Cookie Horner remarked that the logo’s goals were to represent the centennial slogan of “Celebrate our past; Inspire our future” and also include an iconic image of Acadia. Featuring a historic Bates Cairn and a distant view from one of Acadia’s mountain-summit hiking trails, along with native blueberries that are so closely associated with Acadia and the Maine coast, the logo gives a nod to past, present, and future in a visually eye-catching design.

 

Winner Catherine Breer wrote of having her design selected: “I have been coming to Acadia since my children were small, always camping at the same campground on Somes Sound. We have hiked the Bubbles, eaten popovers at the Jordan House, listened to the waves crash at Thunder Hole, swum at Echo Lake, and taken in the view from the top of Cadillac Mountain. The natural beauty and diversity of Acadia never ceases to amaze me, and has always been an inspiration to me as an artist. To be part of the preservation of this magical place is both an honor and a privilege.”
