The snows are melting in the north country, a nice gradual melt so far, evenly feeding the streams and mighty waters. It feels like an early thaw, but weather being what it is I haven’t pulled the Hawaiian shirts out of the attic just yet. This weather has however gotten me increasingly excited about this upcoming paddling season and extra skwirmy behind the desk.
We have an extraordinary stewardship season ahead of us along the NFCT. Both our Internship Program and Waterway Work Trip schedule have been extended. The WWT details can be found on our website. The WWTs are already starting to get filled up, so if you are the type that likes planning ahead of time, you might want to browse the offering and find one thats a good match while there is still room.
Our internship applications are trickling in at a steady stream. We have about two weeks to go until the March 31st deadline so if you are interested or you know anyone that would like to have an amazing, one of a kind experience, send them to the NFCT website for application information. I think this year will be particularly special for our group of dedicated interns because there will be much involvement with our 10th Anniversary events. I have been told that myself and our crew of interns are in charge of creating the float that will be in the parade at our Rangeley, Maine anniversary event.
I have a few float ideas up my sleeve, can’t wait to hear what the interns come up with, and am open to suggestions, so feel free to respond with ideas.
