Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer experience while enjoying your natural areas? Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is seeking citizen volunteers who are passionate about nature and want to help protect our natural heritage by giving back. Volunteers learn about the natural history and ecology of their local ecosystem and much more.  After training, they extend that knowledge to the community through volunteer service in natural resource education and conservation. Master Naturalist volunteer service opportunities are many and varied and accomplished annually. Master Naturalists also form lasting friendships while socializing with other volunteers with the same interests.

Master Naturalists learn:

  • basic ecology, geology, hydrology, and plant/animal communities of local natural areas
  • teaching techniques and interpretation tips
  • values and benefits that natural areas add to our lives
  • locations and secrets of little-known natural areas

Class size is limited for this highly popular program so apply today :

  • Early birds who register by May 15, 2020 receive a $75 discount
  • Completed applications must be received by June 5, 2020

The program will be hosted at the Lehigh County Conservation District.  The Fall 2020 training class will be held on Tuesday evenings and four Saturdays from August 25 through October 27. For a detailed schedule and more information or to apply online:
