Arlington Regional Master Naturalists Volunteer Training Class
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 an additional 8 hours of continuing education annually to become certified.
Arlington Regional Master Naturalists (ARMN) will be holding training this spring, beginning February 26 through June 11, 2019 on Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington. Four Saturday field trips (dates TBD) will be scheduled at parks around the area. Applications are due Friday, January 18, 2019.
ARMN will hold an open house for prospective trainees on Sunday January 13, 2019 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm at Long Branch Nature Center, 625 S. Carlin Springs Road. Applicants for the Spring 2019 Basic Training Class are encouraged to attend.
