Are you fascinated with nature?  Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge and skills with others?  The Wisconsin Master Naturalist (WIMN) program, a statewide effort to promote awareness, understanding and stewardship of the state’s natural resources, is developing a corps of informed volunteers throughout the state. You can become a WI Master Naturalist Volunteer!

A volunteer training course will be held at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary, N2384 Hunt Hill Road, from Sunday evening, August 27 to Friday, September 1, 2017. Sunday’s class will be from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, and Monday to Friday the class will be held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The $250 course involves 40 hours of training in natural history, interpretation and conservation stewardship.   Once trained, a Wisconsin Master Naturalist provides volunteer service in one of three areas:  education/interpretation, stewardship, or citizen science.   To maintain certification, volunteers must complete 40 hours of service each year, in addition to eight hours of advanced training.

Scholarships are available to help pay for the course.
