Learn how you can join a community of volunteers who are helping conserve Virginia’s natural resources. The Rivanna Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist program seeks individuals who want to assist with natural resource education, citizen science, and stewardship projects. Learn more about the program and expectations at an upcoming Information Session.
The Rivanna Master Naturalists are conducting three Information Sessions ahead of the annual Basic Training Class which will begin in February 2018. All Information Sessions are at the Ivy Creek Natural Area Education Building at 1780 Earlysville Road, Charlottesville.
Information Session Dates
- Wednesday, November 29, 9:00 am
- Saturday, December 16, 10:00 am
- Wednesday, January 3, 9:00 am
During these sessions we will review the program and schedule so that you gain a better understanding of the scope and topics that will be covered. We will also discuss the requirements for completing the course and certification. Several local Virginia Master Naturalist volunteers will be there to share what they have gained from this program and how they fit the volunteer requirements into their lives. You will learn what types of activities are available and hear what motivates our members.
You may also find the Virginia Master Naturalist website quite helpful http://www.virginiamasternaturalist.org. Please join us at one of the above sessions.
Applications for 2018 class are due by Friday, January 12.
