Working in partnership with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and the Richard and Jimmy Carrier Family, FSM is helping to conserve 14,000 acres of productive forestlands and sensitive wetland and high elevation habitats adjacent to the Appalachian Trail and Gulf Hagas and along the West Branch of the Pleasant River.

Celebrating 30 Years and a Million Acres Conserved for Maine
The Forest Society of Maine is proud to be celebrating our thirtieth anniversary. We were established in 1984 to conserve Maine forestlands for their ecological, economic, recreational, and cultural values. Today we have helped to conserve nearly a million acres in Maine’s North Woods.
Thank you to our many friends and supporters who have helped make this remarkable achievement possible. If you are just starting to explore FSM's work, we hope you will join us as we look to the next 30 years and another million acres conserved.
