Williston, Vermont, September 6, 2006 - Peregrine Outfitters partnered up with Waldies® to help out the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) at the recent Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show. Waldies® made it possible for Peregrine to sell samples of Waldies® comfy clogs at the show for less than dealer cost and as a result, Peregrine was able to donate $700 to the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.

NFCT links the watersheds of northern New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire, and Maine. The 740-mile kayak and canoe trail traces historic Native American travel routes through the rivers of this region, and is a living reminder of the area's history, where rivers were both highways and routes of communication.

“We were thrilled to receive this contribution,” says NFCT Co-founder, Rob Center. “The outdoor industry has been an enthusiastic supporter of our efforts to create a recreational resource of national significance. The generosity of Peregrine Outfitters and Waldies® will provide a substantial boost for our project efforts during 2007.”

Waldies® are popular rubber comfy clogs made from patented closed-cell foam.

Peregrine Outfitters distributes over 7,000 accessories and books to outdoor retailers.
