Do you love nature and find yourself looking for a way to share that love with the North Country community? The Nature Up North project at St. Lawrence University is seeking volunteers. We are expanding volunteer opportunities in the coming year and seek enthusiastic volunteers of all ages to help with a variety of tasks. No set time committed, and we'll only contact you for things you tell us you're interested in helping with! Sign up to be an youth or public program photographer, join our fundraising or community outreach teams, or consider volunteering as a guest naturalist!  Join us this weekend to learn more. Bring a friend, or join our volunteer team to make new ones!
