The Master Naturalist program provides opportunities for adult volunteers to learn about their state's natural history, environment, and conservation issues. Master Naturalist programs promote nature-based community service by citizen volunteers and provide continuing education opportunities.
The mission of the University of Illinois Extension Master Naturalist Program is to provide science-based educational opportunities that connect people with nature and help them become engaged environmental stewards.
The program educates and trains adult volunteers so they are better equipped to share natural resource information with others in their communities; and to assist with environmental conservation and restoration activities. We all have a responsibility to protect the natural resources in the places where we live in order to ensure our world is "fit for the future."
We plan to host another Master Naturalist Training in the Summer of 2019. If you have questions or would like to be included in the initial marketing of our next training please fill out our Master Naturalist Interest Form.
