Online auction supports stewardship, programs for the Northern Forest Canoe Trail

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) will host its annual online auction Nov. 15-30 to support stewardship and programming along the 740-mile water trail that connects New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Quebec.

The auction features gear and experiences donated by businesses, organizations and artisans across the Northern Forest region. This year’s feature item is a Nova Craft Pal 16-foot recreational canoe, donated by White Rose Canoe.

“We’re coming off a year in which our stewardship crew — along with a record number of volunteers — completed an incredible number of maintenance and access projects along and adjacent to the canoe trail,” said Karrie Thomas, NFCT’s executive director. “We also saw a dramatic increase in the number of people interested in paddling and outdoor recreation. The support of our community has never been more critical in making sure we enhance and maintain these natural resources.”

Each fall, the NFCT gathers quality products and services from trail-side businesses and corporate partners to appeal to paddling and outdoor enthusiasts. To bid, donate or view a list of available items, visit
