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

As a NFCT Stewardship Intern, Waring 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.

Waring is studying environmental science and expeditionary studies at SUNY Plattsburgh where she is a senior. She has completed British Canoe Union paddling courses and Wilderness First Responder training, and has experience with trail construction and maintenance through the Student Conservation Association.

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.
