Lowering The Volume At Acadia 

Ofiicials at Acadia National Park, are in the process of trying to keep the park even more natural. They are trying to work on prohibiting aircrafts from flying within the park’s boundries.John Kelly, Acadia Park Planner, says that the park is working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), to establish buffer zones that would extend a half mile from the park’s boundaries and 5,000 feet in the air.Any rules would not affect aircraft using the Hancock County-BarHarbor Airport in Trenton.Kelly says noise from aircraft is an issue in national parksacross the country. In 2000 Congress passed a law requiring the FAAto work with the National Park Service to manage air tours.
