Learn and Serve in Nature
Supported through the University of Wisconsin–Madison Division of Extension, the Master Naturalist program promotes awareness, understanding, and stewardship of the natural environment by developing a network of well-informed volunteers dedicated to conservation service within their communities.
To become a Master Naturalist, individuals complete 40 hours of expert-led training at locations across the state. Equipped with new knowledge, experiences, and connections, Master Naturalists then go on to serve stewardship, citizen science, and education efforts in Wisconsin and continue their learning through advanced trainings.
Master Naturalists come from all walks of life – college students, retirees, teachers, farmers, hunters, nature guides, professionals, young parents – and represent all levels of knowledge about the natural world. They help monitor weather, maintain trails, teach children about pollinators, and so much more.
