Nature Up North combines experiences in nature with web-based technologies to spark new interest in the natural world. We lead hikes, paddles, and educational workshops in the community and in local schools and our interactive website allows users to download trail maps, share nature photos, learn about local outdoor events, and participate in citizen science projects. We aim to make technology a tool to building an environmentally aware community in the North Country.

We are proud to offer opportunities for motivated student interns to contribute to our mission, including developing programs, creating online content, managing social media, website development, engaging with the community though environmental journalism, and more.
