RLHT was incorporated in 1991 as a 501(c)3 conservation land trust. Our 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.
Our staff consists of seven full-time staff members, 25 plus seasonal staff, 20 board members and over 100 volunteers who participate annually. 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.
