Ongoing Programs

Self Guided Discovery Trails

Would you rather explore the Rangeley Lakes Region on your own? There’s so much to enjoy on our conservation lands that sometimes it isn’t easy to get started. Below you’ll find locations and guides for the best birding, dark skies, photography, and en Plein air painting. Be sure to explore our Events. 


Rangeley Birding Festival

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, all in one weekend! 


Annually reoccurring the second weekend of June.
