Help us keep track of the progression of fall by monitoring maple trees.

Do you love to take photos? Join us for a four week long Love Your Mother photo challenge!

To participate, just submit a picture taken between Wednesday, April 22nd (Earth Day) and Friday, May 22nd 2020 from somewhere in the North Country. The picture can be of anything you choose - maybe it is a sunrise, a waterfall, birds at your feeder... you name it!

Post the picture on Nature Up North as an Encounter (you'll need to create a free account on natureupnorth.org). We will randomly select the posters of two Encounters to receive a prize and a third encounter will be featured as the home page on our website for a month!

North Country explorer and a small snowperson Just Our Nature

One of my favorite snowy day activities is building snow sculptures, whether that be the classic snow family or something a bit more outside of the box. And with all this fresh snow from our most recent winter storm, now is the perfect time! Matthew Morris, of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, has taken the snow sculpting game up a notch.
