Description

Trees For Tomorrow (TFT), a non-profit environmental education center in Eagle River, will be hosting a Wisconsin Master Naturalist training. Join TFT staff and regional experts in a week-long exploration of the waters, forests, wildlife, and geology that make the Northwoods so special. Our field experiences allow opportunities to explore county, state, or national forest lands as well as the beautiful lakes, rivers, and wetlands of the Northwoods. Please note that this training visits several field locations that will require a moderate amount of hiking on and off trail, sometimes on uneven terrain.

          Lodging: Lodging is available in one of our on-site dormitories for $40/night, made payable to Trees For Tomorrow. Please plan to bring your own towels and bedding.

          Meals: A continental style breakfast is available each morning at no extra cost for the participants. Lunch is available for the week (Sunday-Friday) for an additional fee of $70/person, made payable to TFT. Those not participating in the TFT lunch option will need to bring lunch each day. We do ask that participants commit to the entire week for the lunch option. You are responsible for your own dinner arrangements.

For more information, or to reserve lodging, meals, or discuss dietary needs, please contact Jenny Sadak at 715-479-6456 or jenny@treesfortomorrow.com.

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.

Financial Hardship

The Wisconsin Master Naturalist program believes that finances should not be a barrier to learning. Reduced registration fees are available for those who indicate the fee is a hardship. Reduced fees will be available during the registration process at a self-selected rate of either $200, $150, or $100. Our hope is that by participating in the Master Naturalist program you are able to give back your time to organizations that need your help.
