Applications now being accepted for volunteer training for the Fall 2017 Class of Arlington Regional Master Naturalists

You can make a difference in our community by becoming a Master Naturalist volunteer! The Virginia Master Naturalist program prepares volunteers to provide education, citizen science, and outreach to conserve and manage natural resources and public lands. Master Naturalist volunteers gain certification through state-approved natural history courses with a local focus. Recognized experts in a wide range of disciplines such as ecology, botany, herpetology, ornithology, forest and aquatic ecosystems, and much more provide fun and interactive training. Volunteers must commit to at least 40 hours of service annually to become certified.

Arlington Regional Master Naturalists will be holding evening and weekend training this fall, beginning September 5 through December 12, 2017 on Tuesdays from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington. Four Saturday field trips will be scheduled at parks around the area. Applications are due Tuesday, August 15, 2017.
