Become a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist

The Master Naturalist training program is a national initiative that aims to connect people with their local ecosystems through intensive natural science training and local conservation service work. It is a venture directed toward developing local corps of "master volunteers and service providers" to offer education, outreach and stewardship dedicated to the understanding and management of natural areas within their communities.

This year-round program has three components: the initial volunteer training course, volunteer service hours, and advanced training classes.

What is a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist?
A Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is an individual with a passion for the natural world who participates in an intensive training program and uses his or her knowledge by giving back to the community through volunteer service.
