Last week, the Rivanna Master Naturalist Class of 2014 completed their last training session. Thirty-five new Master Naturalists have joined our ranks. This was our largest class to date and we had several reservations and concerns about how successful we would be with such a large number of students, but everyone on the Curriculum Committee and the class pitched in to make this work. This class has already contributed more than 530 hours of volunteer time and four members have attained the necessary volunteer and advanced training hours to be certified! We are very excited to add these volunteers’ talents and enthusiasm to our chapter.
