The Virginia Master Naturalists is a corps of volunteers dedicated to conserving our natural heritage. We assist local sponsoring agencies such as schools, environmental groups and Virginia State agencies. We educate, gather scientific data, maintain trails and other environmental endeavors. We have a broad range of age, interests and backgrounds. And we are looking for like minded people to join our mission.
We strongly encourage you attend an information session to meet some of the Chapter members as well as better understand the program and the volunteer requirements. Three different sessions will be held at Ivy Creek Natural Area Education Building at 1780 Earlysville Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903. They are December 10 at 7 PM, January 4 at 10 AM and January 7 at 7 PM.
