16th Annual Northern Forest Canoe Trail Auction

Auction supports stewardship, programs for the Northern Forest Canoe Trail

This fall, paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts have a chance to bid on amazing experiences and gear, for a good cause: supporting Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) stewardship and programming.

NFCT’s online auction will take place Nov. 13-29. Proceeds support stewardship projects, events and more.

“The online auction is an excellent way for paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts to win gear and experiences and support the canoe trail,” said Karrie Thomas, NFCT’s executive director. “The funds raised help to keep waterways clean and accessible for all users.”

NFCT’s team gathers a variety of quality products and services from trail-side businesses and corporate partners to appeal to paddling and outdoor enthusiasts. Between NFCT supporters and its partners at paddling.com, the auction is promoted to an international audience of over 300,000 paddlers and outdoor adventurers.

The trail showcases the mix of landscapes and communities currently lining the traditional routes used by Indigenous peoples, settlers, and guides. It is the longest in-land water trail in the nation and consists of 23 rivers and streams, 59 lakes and ponds, 45 communities, and 65 portages.
