Arkansas Master Naturalists

Become a Master Naturalist

Want to learn about the natural world and participate in volunteer projects that contribute to conservation in Arkansas?  Arkansas Master Naturalist chapters statewide are recruiting new members to participate in their spring Naturalist in Training courses. Classroom and field sessions led by expert naturalists and professionals in their fields will cover topics from trees to birds to geology to stream ecology. Completing the course is the first step to becoming a Arkansas Master Naturalist. 

As an Arkansas Master Naturalist you will have access to a wide range of volunteer activities that will help you learn more about the beautiful flora and fauna of our natural state, share your knowledge with others and spend time outdoors with a purpose that will benefit nature. Learn more about how you can make a significant contribution by contacting your local chapter.  For more information, see below.
