Volunteers sought for multi-day project in John J. McDevitt Woods

RANGELEY - The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust is needs volunteers for a multi-day project on their recently acquired property in Wilsons Mills, the John J. McDevitt Woods. This overnight project will take place June 12 to June 15.

“This 230-acre parcel on the New Hampshire border, has a few trails, a rustic cabin, and a need for some attention,” said Natural Resource Manager, Alyssa Andrews. “This volunteer project will be a unique opportunity to spend some quality time on one of RLHT’s newest properties.”

Volunteers are needed to assist with trail trimming and blazing, constructing a firepit, and working on the cabin itself, and many other hands-on tasks. RLHT will provide necessary tools, safety equipment, and lodging. Participants are asked to contribute a $75 fee to cover the cost of food for the project.

If you are interested you can find more information at rlht.org/get-involved/volunteer, or by emailing aandrews@rlht.org.

The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust maintains traditional public access and uses of over 14,000 acres of conservation land for recreation, education, and scientific study. They operate EcoVenture Youth Camp, Headwaters Lake Protection Program, and offer remote and traditional camping through Cupsuptic Lake Park & Campground.
