Friends of the Farm River Estuary, Inc. (FFRE – pronounced Free) 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 to have an influence on the use of the upper river and the larger watershed, especially where detritus and overland runoff pose a threat.

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.

For further information, you may download the following PDF documents, or send us an email, or contact one of our board members.
