WAITSFIELD, Vt. – Kevin Large of Bow recently completed a summer internship with the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, Inc. (NFCT) based in Waitsfield, Vt.

As a NFCT Stewardship Intern, Large was part of a crew working on a variety of trail projects, and leading Waterway Work Trips in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The projects ranged from erosion prevention to improving waterside campsites, portage trails, and access to launch sites along the 740-mile recreational waterway.

Large is a graduate of Bow High School, and is now a junior at the University of New Hampshire where he is majoring in outdoor recreation. He has been on staff at the Wanakee United Methodist Center in Meredith for the past three years, serving as the adventure programmer in 2009.

The NFCT is a canoe and kayak trail connecting lakes, ponds, rivers, streams and portage trails between Old Forge, N.Y. and Fort Kent, Maine. Read about the work completed by the 2010 NFCT interns on the Voices From the Trail blog at http://nfct.wordpress.com/.
