RANGELEY — On July 11, the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust kicked off its 2011 edition of the popular Outdoor Adventure Series with a GPS workshop conducted by Patty Cormier of the Maine Department of Conservation. This is the fourth year of these educational and fun-filled events.

Fees for the events range between $10 and $40 per person. For paddling events, a limited number of canoes and kayaks are provided on a first come first served basis or participants are welcome to bring their own.
