RANGELEY LAKES HERITAGE TRUST’S
RLHT & RLRS Partner for Water Skills
June 15, 2023
Students spent time on land learning the five basic strokes, the parts of the canoe, and how to enter and exit. They also demonstrated that they know how to fit a lifejacket properly and can use water safety hand signals.
After practicing, each grade took to Haley Pond for first-hand experience. Most were excited, some were hesitant, and overall, everyone enjoyed being outside learning. Registered Maine Guides Nini Christensen and Seth Laliberte provided on-water support.
RLRS and RLHT plan to continue their partnership, building on these skills and connecting our students to the region’s natural resources.
