Six Public Openings in MN Master Naturalist Volunteer Training at College

March 13, 2014

Anoka-Ramsey Community College is hosting a Big Woods Big Rivers Minnesota Master Naturalist Volunteer Training beginning Tuesday May 27, 2014. Six openings are open to the public registration on a first-come basis.

The course will be taught at Anoka-Ramsey Community College for five weeks, May 27 through June 26, 2014, two mornings per week, 9 a.m. to noon, for a total of 10 class meetings. Field trips will take place primarily during class meeting times in Hennepin and Anoka counties.

The cost for the course is $200, which includes materials. Master naturalist volunteers complete a 40-hour, hands-on course with expert instructors and fellow learners and study natural history, environmental interpretation and conservation stewardship.

Final certification comes with the completion of 40 hours of volunteer service. The program offers three courses that correspond to Minnesota’s three major ecosystems: Big Woods, Big Rivers, Prairies and Potholes, and Northwoods, Great Lakes.

The course will cover the natural and cultural history of the Big Woods, Big Rivers region and provide an in-depth overview of the deciduous forest ecosystem.

Participants will observe and learn about the variety of plant and animal communities of the region, develop their ability to observe nature and learn tools to improve these skills. In addition, participants will improve their communication skills by sharing knowledge with other participants and working on a group project.
