Description

Cable Natural History Museum and Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center are partnering to offer a week-long Wisconsin Master Naturalist Volunteer training. Local and regional field experiences will be incorporated into each day of the training. This schedule allows out-of-town participants the opportunity to take the Master Naturalist training in a short time-frame.

The Wisconsin Master Naturalist Program is a network of well-informed citizens dedicated to conservation education and service within Wisconsin communities.  The Master Naturalist Volunteer Training provides 40 hours of coursework in natural history, interpretation, and conservation stewardship.  Trainings combine classroom instruction with field experiences and are taught by professional natural resources educators and scientists.  Once trained, Wisconsin Master Naturalist Volunteers provide 40 hours of service and take 8 hours of advanced training each year to maintain their certification and receive a recognition pin.
