was formed by local citizens to have a voice in determining the
estuary's future. Our mission is to facilitate access to, and environmentally
sound use of, the lower Farm River watershed through collaboration,
outreach and education.
Our primary focus is on the Riparian Corridor from the mouth of
the river to U.S. Route 1, including the floodplains and wetlands
connected directly to the river, and areas near the Riparian Corridor
that have been or could be permanently protected. We also strive

watershed, especially where detritus and overland runoff pose a
FFRE currently has about 150 contributing members. Management is
vested in a Board of Directors, which is responsible for overall
policy and direction. Responsibility for day-to-day activities is
delegated to the President and committees. Advisory board members
lend their specialized professional knowledge to advise the Board.
