The L.L.Bean gift has been used to extend Island Explorer service into the fall and to introduce a Bicycle Express between the Bar Harbor Village Green and Acadia National Park's carriage road system.
     L.L.Bean's financial support for the Island Explorer underscores the company's ongoing commitment to responsible recreation, conservation, and preservation. "We hope others will join L.L.Bean in supporting America's National Parks," said company President Steve Smith.
     L.L.Bean offers outdoor gear and apparel for the whole family through their catalogue, retail stores, and on-line. For more information about L.L.Bean's donation go to:
