This spring, Riverbank Media will begin production of five ten-minute-long videos educating paddlers about the human and natural histories found in and along the waterways and towns comprising the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT). Interwoven with the narrative will be safety and stewardship messages aimed at fostering safe and respectful trips on the Trail. These videos will be available online and linked to recommended trip maps on the NFCT website. The videos will include routes on Lakes Champlain and Memphremagog, Missisquoi, Clyde and Nulhegan Rivers, Island Pond and other bodies of water in northwestern Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom. Ultimately, this video series will enhance existing recreational opportunities by showcasing interesting subjects both within and beyond the riverbanks.
This project will be produced in close cooperation with the non-profit Northern Forest Canoe Trail and has been funded by a Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation Recreational Trails Program grant. Check our journal for updates from the field.
