FSM is currently working on conservation projects throughout Maine. Three projects under way, involving approximately 10,500 acres of forests, are located in the western part of Maine. We are also working with landowners in Aroostook County and eastern Maine on projects that could conserve an additional 15,000 acres of forestland. In all of these efforts, FSM is working with landowners to address sustainable forest management, appropriate levels of ecological protection, and ensure public recreational access.
FSM is working with Bernd Heinrich, renowned author and biologist, and Lynn Jennings to conserve their 650 acres of forestland in Weld, Maine. Read about the Heinrich Forest project.
