Course consists of weekly sessions and two Saturday field trips. Participants are allowed to miss one class session, and field trip attendance is required.
Participants will do a capstone project as teams - project suggestions will be provided. Graduates then volunteer 40 hours each year to remain an active Master Naturalist.
