Sign Up Now for Fall ARMN Training

Applications now being accepted for volunteer training for the Fall 2013 Class of Arlington Regional Master Naturalists

      You can make a difference in our community by becoming a Master Naturalist volunteer!  The Virginia Master Naturalist program trains volunteers to provide education, citizen science and outreach to conserve and manage natural resources and public lands.  Master Naturalist volunteers gain certification through state-approved natural history courses. Recognized experts in a wide range of disciplines such as ecology, botany, herpetology, ornithology, forest and aquatic ecosystems and much more provide fun and interactive training.  Volunteers must commit to at least 40 hours of service annually to become certified.

Arlington Regional Master Naturalists will be holding daytime training this fall, beginning September 9 through December 9, 2013 on Mondays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington, and at other locations around the county. (There will be no class on October 14 or November 11.) Classroom training will be scheduled for the morning with field training to follow in the afternoons.  Applications were due Monday, August 19, 2013; however, there are a few openings still available. If interested please send in your application as soon as possible.
