Nature Up North team members Mary Hussmann, Jacob Malcomb and Erika Barthelmess spent two wonderful, creative, productive, energizing days with ten fabulous teachers from Gouverneur, Canton, Colton-Pierrepont and Massena Central Schools planning a suite of activities to take place this fall that will help provide place-based, community-focused environmental education to our North Country youth. Awe inspiring! We look forward to seeing what this workshop produces this fall!
