Giving season is upon us!

A warm thank you to everyone who donated to us on #GivingTuesday, which is the biggest global donation day of the year and is the kickoff to the year-end giving season. All told, 39 donors helped us raise $2270 in 24 hours, which means they adopted 76 acres! If you missed the excitement yesterday, don’t worry, there are still many acres available for adoption. Our Adopt-an-Acre campaign is ongoing, and is in fact available every day of the year. You can donate to show your own support for the UP’s land, or you can donate in honor of someone else. Adopt-an-acre certificates make particularly excellent gifts for people who love nature.

Read our new blog post here if you would like more information, or click the button below to donate now! All acres will be symbolically adopted until November 2019.





 


 

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!)
