At the Fall River Conservancy (FRC), we engage land owners, agricultural operators, ranchers, and other stakeholders to devise viable solutions for restoring working landscapes.  Although Fall River stakeholders differ significantly in demographics, we share a common interest in the general economic, cultural, and ecological well-being of the valley.  FRC recognizes that conservation programs sometimes have hidden costs that impact human lives in unintended ways.  But we reject the idea that the environment and the economy are mutually exclusive.  Consequently, FRC designs projects that protect natural resources while also supporting local economies.  Collaboration, transparency, and clear communication characterize FRC’s approach to conservation.
