Mission Statement


Frenchman Bay Conservancy's mission is to conserve distinctive ecosystems and landscapes for the benefit of all, from the Union River and Frenchman Bay watersheds east to the Hancock County line.

Frenchman Bay Conservancy is a private, accredited, not-for-profit land trust. Now in our second decade of operation, we have protected over 6,600 acres through conservation easements or FBC-owned preserves.  The easements cover a variety of land uses, including an organic farm, a working woodlot, blueberry fields, wild forest and marsh.  The Tucker Mountain easement covers the summit of a small mountain in Sullivan which has hiking trails available for use by the public.  The parcels we own include Tidal Falls, which we maintain as a public park, and 50 acres on Little Tunk Pond with a swimming beach open to the public.
