About Wisconsin Master Naturalist

Master Naturalist training is a 40-hour series of sessions and field experiences that presents a consistent, statewide perspective on Wisconsin’s natural resources, ecological processes, and conservation issues. They are offered across the state through trained partner organizations. Although each training varies based on the location, field experiences and guest experts, key concepts remain consistent from training to training. Learn more about what’s covered in each of our Master Naturalist trainings.

To synthesize and implement their knowledge, participants will work in small groups to complete a small training project related to education/interpretation, stewardship, or citizen-science. The training project is a fun, low-stakes opportunity to try out volunteer activities in a supportive environment.

Details:

  • The participant fee is $275 and includes all materials.
  • Need-based scholarships are available.
  • Attendance is essential. Only four hours of training may be missed.
  • Open to adults 18 years of age and older.
  • It’s a fun and motivational learning environment!

** Master Naturalist Trainings are primarily outdoor learning experiences which may include extended periods of standing, hiking on both flat paths and off-trails with inclines, and a variety of weather conditions. If you have questions about the activity level of the training, please contact the program office info@wimasternaturalist.org prior to registering.
