We are pleased to share images from our 2020 Nature Up North calendars!

Each year, you share hundreds of photos and observations with us here on natureupnorth.org as Encounters. For another year running, we're excited to be sharing some of our favorite photos from the previous year through our printed wall calendar. In addition to stunning local photography, our calendars also feature Nature Notes highlighting seasonal wildlife behavior to look for each month.

Students at the October Vigil In the Schools

Our next Monthly Climate Action Vigil is this Friday, December 6th, from 4-5 in Canton. It is cold, so wear warm clothes! 

At our November vigil, we were joined by candidate for U.S. Congress, Tedra Cobb.  Tedra has since garnered national attention to her campaign and raised over 1 million dollars. Tedra also spoke on the SLU campus on November 13th to more than 50 students about the Climate Crisis.

With just a quick walk around the Canton Farmers’ Market, you can see the wide variety of vendors that come each week. Each has their own unique experiences and stories as to how they got to the market. I interviewed a few of the vendors to see how they got started and to learn how the season went. After all, who better to learn from when it comes to the state of our environment?
