Explore a section of the trail, meet people with similar interests, and help complete meaningful work along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail this summer. Join our staff, interns and other volunteers for a weekend of field work. A small fee covers all meals, including Friday dinner, Saturday meals, and Sunday breakfast. Trips begin Friday evening and wrap up after lunch on Sunday. And we always make time for paddling, exploration, and relaxation. Advanced registration required.
