Minnesota Master Naturalist Chapters
Minnesota Master Naturalist chapters are regional groups of volunteers who meet to share experiences, learn together, connect with natural resource experts, cooperate in identifying local needs, and become more involved in environmental events and projects in their communities. Chapters are "officially" sanctioned through the Minnesota Master Naturalist state program, and agree to abide by certain standards and structures for operation. Active volunteers, participants in Master Naturalist classes, and other members of the natural resources community can all join chapters. Different chapters serve different regions of the state. Chapter meetings usually take place at the site of a host organization like a regional nature center.
