Interested in volunteering for RLHT? 

Please join our growing community of volunteers! There are many tasks that we could use your help with and which we depend on volunteers to help us accomplish. There are four areas where we could use your support; on the trail, on the water, at our programs, and around our office. 

Trail Stewardship Program

Want to have your boots on the ground? Our Trail Stewards look after our trail throughout the year. They trim branches, remove debris, plow trailheads, groom trails, and help us keep free and open access for everyone. Is there a trail that you often walk and would like to volunteer on? Contact our Natural Resource Steward, Alyssa at (207) 864-7311 ext. 105 to learn more. 





Trail Monitor

Commit to walking a trail once every two weeks in non-snowy months.

Then will call, email or text RLHT’s Natural Resource Steward a trail report.


Trail Steward

Commit to volunteering once a month for half a day. 

Then work with RLHT staff to maintain a different trail each month.


Trail Technician

Be available to work on specialty projects e.g. bog bridging, replacing picnic tables, resurfacing trails, etc. 


Invasive Plant Patrol & Water Quality Monitors 

Rather spend your time volunteering in a boat? Our Headwaters Lake Protection Program needs invasive plant patrollers and water quality monitors on many water bodies in the Rangeley Lakes Region. Patrollers survey the shoreline each summer for invasive plants. Water Quality Monitors check water quality biweekly throughout the season. Contact our Program Manager, Amanda at (207) 864-7311 ext. 103 to learn more. 


Do you have an outdoor passion you want to share? Let us know! We would love to partner in a new program.

Throughout the year, we could always use a few extra hands at our programs - and we'd be incredibly grateful! Our Education Volunteers assist with our workshops in various ways: leading walks, cooking at events, providing first aid. Contact our Program Manager, Amanda at (207) 864-7311 ext. 103 to start the conversation. 

Around the Office

Throughout the year we would appreciate a few extra hands with office tasks like putting together mailings, writing press releases, helping with visitors, building maintenance and shoveling walkways. Contact Tracie Clinch, our Office Manager at (207) 864-7311 ext. 100 to learn more.
