On April 27, 2006, Len Bobinchock, Deputy Superintendent of Acadia National Park, was presented with the Meritorious Service Award of the Department of the Interior by National Park Service Director, Fran Mainella, and Regional Director, Mary Bomar, in Washington, D.C.

In the citation signed by Secretary of the Interior, Gale Norton, Mr. Bobinchock’s many accomplishments over the years were noted. Among others, “Mr. Bobinchock has provided outstanding leadership during his years at Acadia National Park. Besides serving as Deputy Superintendent for four superintendents, Mr. Bobinchock served as Acting Superintendent on three different occasions, totaling nearly 14 months. His positive management style and strong work ethic have resulted in excellent collaborations among park staff to address important and priority issues and projects...He also worked closely with Friends of Acadia as they raised and established private endowments totaling more than $13 million to support long-term maintenance of the park’s carriage roads and hiking trails...Between 1989 and 2003, Mr. Bobinchock oversaw the expansion of the park’s resource management program from two to fourteen natural and cultural resource managers. Because of this enhanced professional staff, the park is now in a better position to address complex scientific issues and be in compliance with key environmental laws...He has been particularly successful at facilitating a strong and broad coalition of businesses, residents, NGOs, local, state and federal agencies, and legislative leaders to advocate for and support the protection of the park’s mission and goals.”
