The Wisconsin Master Naturalist program is a network of well-informed volunteers dedicated to conservation service, leadership, and lifelong learning. The Master Naturalist training provides 40 hours of education in a variety of natural history topics and Master Naturalist service areas. Through expert-led trainings, Master Naturalists are equipped to address challenges facing the state by making positive impacts through stewardship, citizen science, and educational activities. Trainings have an emphasis on outdoor field experiences with some classroom instruction and are taught by professional natural resources educators and scientists. Once trained, Wisconsin Master Naturalists record 40 hours of service and 8 hours of advanced training each year to maintain certification and receive a recognition pin.

COVID Considerations

In response to updated CDC guidance and changing local health conditions we have updated our program guidance. During our upcoming training, we will concentrate our learning outdoors, as much as possible. The use of masks in program settings will be an individual choice. In counties with high community levels of COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that all individuals (regardless of vaccination status) wear a mask when indoors. Please check the levels prior to each training date. All individuals are welcome to continue protected practices, such as face coverings and distancing, even if it is not required or advised. Individual masking choices should not be interpreted as an indicator of vaccination status.


Host sites and field locations may have more stringent requirements. Please follow the guidance that they provide at that time. We recommend bringing a face covering with you each day to be prepared for those situations. Please continue to take measures to protect the vulnerable people in our communities. We ask all staff, volunteers, and participants to stay home when they have signs of infectious illness. Proper handwashing and respiratory etiquette are also important measures to keep individuals and our communities healthy. Everyone who is able should stay up to date on their vaccinations. As we have since the beginning of the pandemic, we will continue to monitor state and local health data. We will notify you if these guidelines change in the future.
