Nature Up North is a community-based organization that is mobilizing to get northern New Yorkers outdoors and experiencing nature. This website is a place for you to share your experiences in the natural world through keen observation, artistic inspiration and scientific data collection. As Nature Up North continues to grow this will also be a space where you can access a variety of resources to aid your exploration of the North Country and all it has to offer.
It's just our Nature. What's yours?
