The Gallery at Somes Sound has been a proud sponsor, collaborating with Friends of Acadia on various programs and events, currently serving on their Team of Business Advisors.

In 1986 Friends of Acadia founders envisioned a membership-based and volunteer-powered organization that would translate their love for Acadia into tangible good for the park. For more than three decades, that vision has guided their work—from modest early volunteer projects and small equipment donations, to major achievements such as Acadia Trails Forever, establishing the nation’s first endowed trail system.  

ABOUT ACADIA NATIONAL PARK:  Protecting more than 47,000 acres on two islands and a mainland peninsula on the rugged coast of Maine, Acadia National Park is a jewel of granite mountains, filigreed coastlines, unique cultural resources, dazzling night skies, and precious communities of plant and animal life. Drawing more than 3.5 million visitors each year, Acadia is one of the ten most popular national parks in the US. It is also one of the smallest and most vulnerable.   


Since 2012, The Gallery at Somes Sound proudly supports and promotes the Mount Desert Chamber of Commerce as they continue to build a vibrant and prosperous community through business leadership.  While respecting and protecting the community resources in the Town of Mount Desert, the Chamber consistently demonstrates their support for tourism and growth of local business.  The Mount Desert Chamber of Commerce continues to expand and extend its commitment by reaching out to other local organizations who have the same level of service and dedication to beautiful Mount Desert Island and surrounding communities.  During these turbulent times, the Mount Desert Chamber of Commerce has proven their strength even in the face of adversity.
