Description

Friends of Hartman Creek and Hartman Creek State Park will partner to offer the Master Naturalist Volunteer training course in one week.  Classes will be held at the park’s shelter and field trips will occur every day, mostly within the park boundaries.

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 Course 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.
