A personal welcome to our gardens
As you visit the gardens this season you may be warmly welcomed by one our garden greeters. The Preserve piloted this program last year to help manage the number of visitors during the pandemic. We decided to continue using greeters this season mainly because our guests appreciated the friendly welcome and the handy source of information located right at the garden entrances. This season's greeters will be at the gardens for four to five hours during the busiest time of the day.
Be on the lookout for the smiling faces of one of our 12 greeters. They are all wonderful to talk with and great source of knowledge about the gardens. Each of them has lived on Mount Desert Island for many years and worked in a variety of fields including as teachers, Acadia National Park naturalists, master gardeners, artists, and librarians. Be sure to introduce yourself, they look forward to seeing you!
