The Upstate Update: January 2022

January 25th, 2022

The Upstate Update is a digital newsletter curated and shared each month that offers insights into Upstate Forever's recent work, highlights upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, and shares other conservation and advocacy news.

We post the Upstate Update here on the Upstate Forever blog each month. If you would like to receive the Upstate Update directly in your email inbox, please sign up for the mailing list.


Snow much fun!

A six-inch blanket of snow is a winter treat not often seen here in the Upstate. From snowman building to sledding, hot cocoa sipping to cross-country skiing, our team had a blast enjoying last week's wintry weather with our families.

Did you get out there, too? Share your photos with us on social media by tagging @upstateforever and #myupstateforever!
