Beginning in October, the Arboretum will offer Maryland Master Naturalist training in partnership with Pickering Creek Audubon Center and Phillips Wharf Environmental Center. Trainees will meet the third Wednesday of every month until July.
The Master Naturalist program is for the person who loves nature and being outdoors. The mission is to engage citizens as stewards of Maryland’s natural resources and ecosystems through science-based education and volunteer service in their communities.
In 2011, I was so thrilled to be in the first class of Master Naturalists at Adkins Arboretum. The friendships I made are still with me today and keep me connected with people who share a passion for the outdoors. I hope you will join us, and I look forward to connecting with you!
