Wing-Nuts May Birdathon on FBC properties 


Branch Lake Cleanup Day very successful

On Saturday, June 6, a volunteer work crew of 24 people from Hancock County cleared the Ellsworth Branch Lake Public Forest trails.  In just 3 hours, this enthusiastic, energetic and very efficient group tackled over 60 blown down trees and tidied the walking routes that many residents and tourists use year around.  We can’t thank these great volunteers well enough for the fantastic job they did.  (Quite frankly, we hope this group helps us again!)

We invite everyone to enjoy the newly cleared trails and beautiful views on this Ellsworth area hike.
