TWO Upcoming Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust Events
BLACK SKY EVENT
Join John Meader of Northern Stars Planetarium & Dark Skies Maine to learn about our stars and more.
One of the simplest but most awe-inspiring joys of being in Rangeley is the night sky. Far from the lights of a large population center, it explodes with stars.
Many visitors marvel at the glow of the Milky Way, shooting stars and other cosmic wonders visible to the naked eye.
RLHT is part of a group that hopes to make Rangeley the first international dark sky community in New England, certified by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).
This event will take place at the former Ecoventure Campus. Remember to wear warm clothes as it is usually cool at night. This is a family event, children should not come unattended. This event is open to the public.
Questions? Please call us at 864-7311.
Directions: From town, head south on Rt 4 for approximately 3.5 miles. Turn right on South Shore Drive. Continue on South Shore Drive for approximately 2 miles. You will see our EcoVenture Camp for Kids sign. Turn in the player.
