Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust was incorporated in 1991 as a 501(c)3 conservation land trust. Its mission is to conserve and steward the natural and historical resources of the Rangeley Lakes Region for the benefit of the community and future generations.
Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust consists of six full time staff members, 25 plus seasonal staff, 20 board members and over 100 volunteers who participate annually. Our staff and volunteers work closely together to maintain trails, inspect boats for invasive plants, and to inventory all of the native aquatic plants in the region's lakes and ponds.
Executive Director David Miller... coming soon!
Office Manager Tracie Clinch is a Rangeley native. After moving to southern Maine for college, she met her husband Albert and had two children.

Stewardship Director Shelby Rousseau grew up in Farmington, CT, attended public schools, a local community college and then onto the University of Maine, where she studied wildlife management. In 1997 she and her family moved to Phillips, Maine, where she served with the Maine Conservation Corps/Americorps, assigned to RLHT. Upon completion of the term in 1998, she was hired by RLHT as the Director of Stewardship. She is a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician Intermediate and a Registered Maine Guide, specializing in flyfishing local waters for cold water species. When not stewarding RLHT’s 13,000 acres of conservation land, Shelby finds harmony in spending time with her family, flyfishing remote streams, paddling, tying flies, playing guitar and gardening.

After graduation in 2017, she joined Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust, where she now does trail work, and lugs a lot of heavy things around.
