ARMN accepts volunteers from any jurisdiction, even those with their own chapters; however the annually required 40 volunteer hours must be completed in Virginia.

Virginia Master Naturalist Programs are open to all, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.
