Event description

Description

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) will hold its first DC Master Naturalist Extension Program. The program consists of two components: an intensive volunteer training that offers a comprehensive overview of natural history; followed by a year-long period in which the trainees give 40 hours of volunteer service to pre-approved projects and sites that fulfills the program’s mission “to promote awareness, understanding, and conservation of the District’s natural environment through a community of trained volunteers.”

Each class is taught by a local expert and is approximately three hours long, consisting of a presentation/lecture that is followed by a hands-on or field activity. Trainees will also have a minimum of eight hours of field trips in the course of their training.

The DC Master Naturalist Program’s training will offer the following classes:

*Day Time Courses are offered on Mondays with an hour lunch break
**Evening Courses are offered on Tuesdays with field trips on Saturdays

A certificate of completion will be issued upon the successful completion of all training sessions.
