Auction supports canoe trail
FORT KENT, Maine — The Northern Forest Canoe Trail 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, Quebec, New Hampshire and Maine.
The auction features gear and experiences donated by businesses, organizations and artisans across the northern forest region and the nation.
Thousands participated in events this year, said Karrie Thomas, the trail’s executive director. The auction provides funds to maintain the waterway and promote paddling for all.
The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is a nonprofit organization that maintains and promotes the trail that runs from Old Forge, New York, to Fort Kent.
