Date: August 27, 2007

The Hulls Cove Visitor Center will reduce its hours beginning September 4. The center will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until October 9, when the hours will go to 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily until the visitor center closes on October 31.

In addition to informational services, the visitor center features an audiovisual orientation program every half-hour. Educational material, including books and maps, may be purchased at the Eastern National sales area. You may also purchase your park pass at the visitor center.

For those who cannot walk the 52 steps to the visitor center, there is an accessible entrance. When entering from Route 3, this entrance is reached by going straight at the four way stop instead of turning right into the visitor center parking lot.

A schedule of fall ranger-led programs can be found in the park newspaper, the Beaver Log, which is available at the visitor center, park headquarters, the Nature Center at Sieur de Monts Spring, Village Green, Thompson Island, and Blackwoods and Seawall Campgrounds. The Beaver Log is also available on our website, at www.nps.gov/acad. Acadia National Park offers boat cruises, hikes, shoreline and carriage road walks, and evening programs at the campgrounds in the fall. Join a park ranger and enjoy the many activities the park has to offer. For more information, call the park at 207-288-3338 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
