Master Naturalist Project Organizer

Posted by Ron Wolford -


The new Master Naturalist project organizer position will be based in our Matteson office. This will be a new program in Cook County. We will be collaborating with the Forest Preserve of Cook County, the Field Museum and Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanic Gardens. Other partners may join us in the future.

On the state level, IL Master Naturalist is collaborating with the Illinois Natural History Survey, the Nature Conservatory, various U of I departments and the Illinois Steward Magazine, and others. Cook County is one of several piloting this program over the next few years.

The closing date for applications for this position is April 15.

Here are the links to two county Master Naturalist pilot sites that are already in place:
