Repeats every week on Tuesday
until Tuesday, June 2, 2020
(Add to calendar)
Due to growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the decision has been made to cancel the March 31st - June 2nd Indiana Master Naturalist class presented by Ball State University, Purdue Extension, and Red-tail Land Conservancy.
We expect to reschedule the course in the fall of 2020.
The Indiana Master Naturalist (IMN) program brings together natural resource specialists and adult learners to foster an understanding of our state’s plants, water, geology, and wildlife, our relationship with the natural world, and to promote natural resource volunteer service. Participants will also learn about interpretation and teaching others about our environment.
The program includes 10 weeks of classroom instruction and/or field instruction, along with a 24-hour requirement for volunteering with a natural resources management organization. To complete the course and become accredited as an Indiana Master Naturalist, participants must attend 8 of the classes held on Tuesdays, March 31 - June 2, 6:00-9:00 pm, on the campus of Ball State University in Muncie. Parking will be provided.
Students will be required to serve 24 hours volunteering with a park or natural resource organization to complete IMN certification.
The $125 registration fee includes instruction, educational materials, supplemental field guides, and IMN accreditation materials. Registrants must be at least 18 years old. The program is limited to 20 students and is expected to fill quickly.
