NFCT Request for Proposals-Facilitators/Designers


The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) is excited to announce the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) aimed at securing a facilitator/designer to guide the process of developing paddler specific spread prevention signage.  This opportunity is funded in part by the Lake Champlain Basin Program.  The NFCT has been committed to working with federal, state, and local partners to stop the spread of aquatic invasives.  Through this project we will create signs that will be installed, first in the Lake Champlain Basin, then at other key locations across the NFCT, and potentially used by organizations nation-wide.  Proposals are due to be postmarked by August 29th.  You can find the RFP by following this link.  All questions can be directed to Walter Opuszynski, NFCT Trail Director at or (802)496-2285 ext.2

Aquatic Invasives affect the quality of our waters by compromising their natural integrity and diversity.  Many aquatic invasives do this by out competing the local flora and fauna.  Aquatic invasives can be spread by animals and humans that transition between waterbodies.  The NFCT is committed to educating our paddlers of the best practices available to prevent the spread of aquatic invasives.

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is a 740-mile inland paddling trail tracing historic travel routes across New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire, and Maine. Northern Forest Canoe Trail, Inc. is internationally regarded as the preeminent water trail organization in North America, and connects people to the Trail’s natural environment, human heritage, and contemporary communities by stewarding, promoting, and providing access to canoe and kayak experiences along this route.
