UPLC in the news: Read about our newest signage project at Tory's Woods

Representatives from UPLC and NMU's Conservation Club went out to Tory's Woods Nature Preserve last weekend, where they hustled to install new interpretive signs before the ground froze! Read all about it here, then lash on some snowshoes and get out to the Preserve to enjoy the beautiful fresh snow and learn about "Transitions in the Natural Environment." (Or wait until spring to experience more of the transitions!)
