Exped is a corporate sponsor of The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT), which links the waterways of New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire and Maine. Each year the NFCT hosts an online auction to raise money for the administration and care of the trail system and Exped always has a few items up for bid. Check it out here at the auction website!

Each fall, Exped sponsors a local showing of the Backcountry Film Festival, east of Seattle in the little town of Cashmere, WA.
