The Nicholas School Naturalists (Nic Nats) is a natural history and outdoors club within the Nicholas School of Environment. Our outdoor trips, which include hiking, backpacking, climbing, rafting, canoeing, birding, scuba diving, and more, are open to any graduate students within the Nicholas School.

The events range from local (around the Triangle) to visiting further away places in North Carolina and the surrounding Southeastern States.
