Our Workflows

We conserve land in the Rangeley Lakes Region, practice sustainable forestry, and work to mitigate climate change.

We also monitor and document the health of the Rangeley Lakes Region’s ponds, lakes, and rivers.

Step into a program! We offer year-round experiential environmental education for all ages. Explore our Events for hiking, dark sky and forest management tours, and more! 

A drive on the Rangeley Lakes National Scenic Byway links RLHT’s conservation properties and mission. If you need a starting point try our self-guided discovery trails. You’ll see why we love this place. 

Surrounded by conserved land, CLPC has world-class amenities! We are sure to have a campsite to suit everyone. Check out our various campsites and rates. 


In Memoriam | Ed Kfoury

Our founder, colleague, and friend, Ed Kfoury, passed away early on Wednesday, May 18, at his winter home on Sanibel Island, Florida.


Ed was a force of nature. He was a powerful advocate and agent for conservation in the Rangeley Region and across the State of Maine, founding the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust in 1991 with friends who understood the urgency of conserving the Rangeley Region. His passion, tenacity, and ability to connect with and motivate people helped launch Maine’s current era of conservation. He was active and engaging till the very end. 


Each of us is unique and irreplaceable, but clearly, we will never see his like again. Together, we can do our best to build upon the foundation he laid.


We will be planning a celebration of his contributions to the Trust and the region in the coming weeks and months and look forward to honoring his legacy together.

From Boreal Chickadees in our vast forests to Loons on our magnificent lakes to the rare Bicknell’s Thrush in the high peaks above, the Rangeley Region is rich with birds. 

Add in both migrating and breeding warblers and you have a unique opportunity to see and learn about birds that are difficult to find in other parts of Maine
