ELLSWORTH — The Frenchman Bay Conservancy will hold a fall hike at Branch Lake Forest 9:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at 1054 Bangor Road.
In 2010, Frenchman Bay Conservancy collaborated with the City of Ellsworth, the Trust for Public Land and the Forest Society of Maine in order to protect Branch Lake. Branch Lake is the singular source of drinking water for Ellsworth, eastern Maine’s largest coastal city. The lake also serves as a source of timber harvesting and public recreation.
