November 16, 2016

We are pleased to announce that 2017 Nature Up North calendars are on sale. Our calendars feature some of our favorite photos that local folks have shared as Encounters on natureupnorth.org in the past year. They also feature Nature Notes highlighting interesting wildlife behavior to look out for each month.  They make a great holiday gift!

Proceeds from our calendar sales benefit Nature Up North's community environmental education initiatives. In the past year Nature Up North has reached more than 1,000 local residents through guided hikes, paddles, workshops, and K-12 programs. 

Nature Up North calendars are available at the following local businesses:

Blue Line Sports, Saranac Lake

Nature’s Storehouse, Canton

Potsdam Food Co-op, Potsdam

St. Lawrence University Brewer Bookstore, Canton

TAUNY Folkstore, Canton

We hope you’ll support our programs, and locally-owned businesses, by buying a Nature Up North calendar this year. And don’t forget to keep posting your North Country nature photos as Encounters. Your photos could be included in next year’s calendar!
