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?
This winter Nature Up North is featuring a Winter Ecology Series, in which St. Lawrence University students in Dr. Karl McKnight's Winter Ecology course share their observations from a weekly field trip to Glenmeal State Forest in Pierrepont. We hope you enjoy their accounts from days spent in the woods examining the fascinating ways plants and animals endure the North Country winter.
