Description

Beaver Creek Reserve, located near beautiful Fall Creek, WI (20 minutes from Eau Claire) is hosting a Master Naturalist Training for the second year in a row. The training promises to be an exciting experience with talks by local experts on invasive plants, animal ecology, forest ecology, geology, wetland diversity, astronomy and many more topics. The training will also include field trips to several locations to learn more about native ecology, soils and our local surroundings. This class is a fantastic opportunity for you if you’ve ever wanted to expand your knowledge base surrounding natural resources. Beaver Creek has no shortage of volunteer opportunities for you after the class is finished. We have volunteer opportunities such as assisting with our butterfly house and helping with our Discovery Room. We hope to see you in June!
