You can make a difference in our community by becoming a Master Naturalist volunteer! The Virginia Master Naturalist program trains volunteers to provide education, citizen science, and outreach to help conserve and steward natural resources and public lands. Master Naturalist volunteers gain certification through state-approved natural history courses. 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 and 8 hours of continuing education annually to become certified.
Arlington Regional Master Naturalists (ARMN) will hold daytime training this fall, beginning September 9 through December 9, 2019 on Mondays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington, and at other locations around the area. Classroom training generally will be scheduled for the mornings with field training to follow in the afternoons. Applications are due Friday, August 9, 2019.
ARMN will hold an open house for prospective trainees on Tuesday, August 6 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at Long Branch Nature Center. Applicants for the Fall 2019 Basic Training Class are encouraged to attend.
