Help construct a new campsite on the Upper Connecticut! The campsite will be established at the recently protected Johnson Farm Wildlife Management Area in Canaan, Vermont. This project will demonstrate how paddling can be a low impact, recreational opportunity compatible with goals of protecting farmland and wildlife habitat.
On Saturday, work will involve constructing timber access stairs, a picnic table, box privy, and installing signage at the new campsite.
On Sunday, there will a dedication ceremony and paddle in honor of Bill Schomburg, who was a stalwart advocate for the protection and responsible public use of the Connecticut River.
Volunteers are invited to come for a day or stay for the weekend as part of a Northern Forest Canoe Trail Waterway Work trip. Advanced registration required at https://www.northernforestcanoetrail.org/stewardship/waterway-work-trips/
