Frenchman Bay Conservancy is dedicated to connecting the next generation of conservation stewards to the land you love.
It can be a challenge for schools to include outdoor, place-based experiences into a regular school day, and students ultimately miss opportunities to establish deeper connections with areas not far from their homes.
Place-based educational experiences are important because they build students’ capacity for empathy, verbal communication, resilience, curiosity, and fine motor skills.
FBC’s approach inspires students and their families to recognize the assets of Downeast Maine and encourages them to become engaged citizens in their communities.
