Wisconsin Master Naturalist Program offers instructor training – March 4-5

Applications will be accepted until Feb. 18, 2015 for a Wisconsin Master Naturalist Instructor Course to be held March 4-5, 2015 at the Pyle Center on the UW-Madison campus.

A WI Master Naturalist Instructor uses the program’s curriculum, tools, and resources to train adult volunteers about Wisconsin’s natural resources, to teach them how to educate others, to connect them to resources, and to help create connections between volunteers and conservation projects.

Instructors train WI Master Naturalist Volunteers because they share a passion to strengthen natural resources literacy and to increase conservation services in communities across the state.

The WI Master Naturalist Instructor Course is a professional development opportunity; preparing and teaching the Volunteer Training Course helps refresh your base knowledge of the state’s natural resources, and connects you with resources and natural resources professionals across the state. Instructors also help build a corps of volunteers working on behalf of natural resources in their communities. Finally, teaching the Volunteer Training Course is really fun. Participants are eager to learn and to work hard. They really enjoy the experience and feel grateful to be part of this conservation effort. More information about instructors and the course is available online.
