About Us

Frenchman Bay Conservancy (FBC) is a nationally accredited, non-profit, land conservation organization located in Hancock, Maine. Now in our 34thyear of operation, we have protected over 10,000 acres through conservation easements and FBC-owned preserves in 12 towns and townships in Maine. Our conserved lands protect a broad variety of ecosystems and traditional land uses, including forest, wetlands, coastline, mountains, an organic farm, a working woodlot, blueberry fields, and waterfront along a wild and scenic river. Frenchman Bay Conservancy maintains more than 28 miles of year-round public access hiking trails for nature observation, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hunting. We protect access for the public to enjoy scenic vistas, sandy beaches, rocky coastlines and mudflats for recreation and commercial access including clam and worm harvesting. Over just the past five years, FBC has increased preserve and easement acres by more than sixty percent and increased miles of trail by fifty percent. We are dedicated to providing public access to encourage people to develop a relationship with the outdoors.
