Content Creation (Vlogging) Intern

The Upper New

The Upper New is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN 99-0733916.  We are an environmental educational organization.  Our first project is The Upper New Review.

The Upper New Review is an environmental literary arts hybrid digital multimedia publication focused on place-based expression of creativity in all its forms, wherever they occur on Earth.  The Upper New Review is fostering place-based creative works around the globe.

The Upper New Review is a place-based socio-cultural archive for bioregionalism, ecological literacy, and sense of place, serving as a curated clearinghouse for expression, exploration, research, learning, design, and stewardship for the populations and communities of all watersheds of the world, exploring the Upper New River basin as our home and example.  We hope our curation and publication  serves as an entry portal to a much deeper understanding of our relationships with the natural world and its ecological complexities.

We see The Upper New Review as one window in the local-global ecological schoolhouse The Upper New is  building over time.
