A Community-Based Natural Resources Volunteer Program
2017 class starts in May, 2017.
The Virginia Master Naturalist Program is a fun way to learn about nature close to home and meet new friends. People from previous sessions are now having a great time monitoring bluebirds, investigating vernal pools, facilitating camera trapping for the Smithsonian, monitoring stream health, learning more about and speaking up for environmental protection.
Master Naturalists are individuals who want to make a difference by helping to maintain the quality of our natural areas and local ecosystems. Interested people become Certified Virginia Master Naturalists through a combination of training and hands on volunteer service.
Membership is open to citizens of Prince William County and beyond. We welcome Fauquier County residents to join our chapter.
No previous experience is needed, just a thirst for knowledge of the world around us paired with a commitment to service to maintain, preserve, and protect our environment for future generations. The more we learn about local places, the more interesting they become.
