National Park Service visitor center gets spruced up by locals

Park Service visitors center getting needed upgrades.

MILLINOCKET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Members of the Millinocket community helped spruce up the National Park service's new visitor center.

The building hasn't been occupied for over three years and was in much need of work. Over the past two weeks, the group of about 40 volunteers have painted, put down new flooring, updated light fixtures and much more. Local business also donated money for supplies as well.

"This is a part of our community now and we want to be friendly to our neighbors," volunteer Jaime Rendau said.

"It certainly wouldn't have happened this quickly or this well done if it wasn't for the volunteers and the local businesses supporting it, it really has been incredible," Christina Marts said. Marts is the community planner for the Katahdin Woods and Waters national monument.
