Northern Forest Canoe Trail summer interns took an all-day moving water clinic on the Missisquoi River in East Highgate, Vermont. They learned paddle strokes, how to read a river and navigate obstructions, and rescue skills. Interns spend the summer doing campsite and portage trail maintenance along the 740-mile water trail. Thanks to a significant canoe donation by Old Town, our crews can pack in tools, camping gear and food barrels for week-long trips into the back country.
