Up North Excursions Day Trips explore and support arts, music, history, and nature in the Northland
Life-long learning and community building. 

If you are interested in a trip, please let me know.   I'll let you know if there is space and the status of the trip. 

I hope to have you join me on day trips! 
These trips support arts and nature in our region and give you learning opportunities and positive experiences.

Upcoming Trips 

Please make sure that when you write out a check
it is made to Wendy Up North.

A minimum number of participants is needed by the deadline for a trip to go.  To be complete your registration must include payment.  

Go on 2 trips in 2020 and your 3rd trip in 2020 is $10 off. 


Make your reservations early.
Trip sizes are typically 22 people. 

It's sad to cancel all the spring trips due to Covid-19.  I hope as the months go along the world will be able to reopen again and it will be safe for people to go places.
