Instructor Training

Instructor Training

Master Naturalist instructors are knowledgeable and passionate individuals who want to share their expertise with others. Using the Master Naturalist key concepts, they educate adults about Wisconsin’s natural world and connect them to conservation projects. Most Master Naturalist instructors work for organizations looking to recruit knowledgeable and trained volunteers.


The Instructor Training is a two-day workshop that provides step-by-step instructions on how to organize, teach, and administer the Volunteer Training. Instructors teach in a team environment with 2-4 colleagues, partners, or volunteers. Before you complete the application below, please be sure to have the support of the host organization where you’d like to hold a Master Naturalist training.
