Do you want to know more about prairies, wetlands or forests? Are you looking for ways to volunteer and be connected to nature? The University of Illinois Extension Master Naturalist program trains adult volunteers who are working on many local projects.
Training sessions are held Wednesdays, Sept. 3 through Nov. 5 from 1 to 5 p.m., and two field trips will be scheduled for Saturdays in September from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Training topics include prairies, wetlands, ornithology, herpetology, botany, entomology, and more. Participants must register for the training, which costs $225.
Applications are available at the U of I Extension Office at 901 Illinois Ave., Waterloo, or 1 Regency Plaza, Collinsville. They are also available online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/mms/. If you have questions regarding the Master Naturalist training, contact Sarah Ruth at (618) 939-3434 or email@example.com.
