Encounters

Cloud covered day near the Grasse River, but the plants are reaching for any remnant sunlight none the less.

Nice nature walk setting up cameras.

Explorative

Common chicory (Cichorium intybus) flower, located on trail off Miner Street and along the Grasse River.

Setting trail cams and checking out the local situation. Several caterpillars on box elder leaf.

Awesome view on an overcast day!

Learning how to post encounters during a NUN workshop while walking cross country trails around campus. Love me some Nature Up North!

One of my favorites times of year has arrived!  We are hosting the 5th annual teachers' workshop at Nature Up North today and tomorrow, and I always find it totally inspiring to collaborate with a group of dedicated North Country K-12 folks.  Let the fun begin!

We headed out to Summer Adventure Camp at Taylor Park this morning to teach campers about river wildlife diversity! It was a great way to get our feet wet on a hot day. The group found a total of 8 animals, including tadpoles, snails, bugs, and 20 clams!

The weather cooperated beautifully for our exploration of Stone Valley's waterfalls -- sunny and not too hot. Very impressive whitewater and geologic formations!
