Every year Acadia NP employees have an opportunity to nominate volunteers to be considered for the
Champlain Award. These are exemplary volunteers who further the park mission. Second year seasonal
visitor service volunteers, Brenda and Peter Barno, who volunteer under the Visitor and Resource
Protection Division were the proud recipients this year.
Known as the Victor Unit, they assisted many visitors with lockouts, jumpstarts, and parking. They also
assisted with road closures, monitored Commercial and Special Use permits in the park, helped process
water quality samples, aided with seal strandings, and assisted with Lost and Found. They were always
willing and eager to lend a helping hand. Thank you for helping make this season great Pete & Brenda!
