Fall 2011 Master Naturalist Program Now Accepting Applications!


Applications now being accepted for volunteer training for the Fall 2011 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 trains 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. 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 daytime training this fall, beginning September 12 through December 12, 2011 on Mondays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington. (There will be no class on October 10.) Classroom training will be scheduled for the morning with field training to follow in the afternoons.  Applications are due Friday, August 19, 2011.   For more information and to complete an application, visit the Arlington Regional Master Naturalist website at www.armn.org.


Virginia Master Naturalist programs and employment are open to all, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.
