Egg Rock Light (Maine) repaired
Great news! Volunteer crews have completed staining and repairs at Egg Rock Lighthouse, near Bar Harbor and Winter Harbor, Maine. The 1875 lighthouse is now owned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), while the optic is still owned and maintained by the Coast Guard.
USFWS provided materials for the work, while Bar Harbor Whale Watch provided transportation. Gary Fagan, owner of the Acadian Nature Tour, donated lunches for volunteers. John Nicolia, owner of the Lulu lobster boat, was a big supporter and helped recruit volunteers.
This is a wonderful example of teamwork on behalf of a historic lighthouse. Anyone interested in helping with the restoration of Egg Rock Lighthouse should contact Zack Klyver at Bar Harbor Whale Watch at 207-288-2386.
