Welcome to WAMN! Western Arkansas Master Naturalists will be happy to have you.
WAMN is of a more nimble size that some other chapters, so you can look forward to immediately participating in the chapter and having chapter activities focus on your areas of interest. Chapter activities currently involve checking water quality with Stream Team, harvesting native plant seeds from Cherokee Prairie and Massard Prairie, policing the highway that cuts through Cherokee Prairie, and eliminating invasive foreign species. We can add your interests to the list!
Dues for the first year are $165, which covers the $135 Naturalist In Training fee and your first year's dues. After that, yearly dues are $30. Dues can be paid on-line or with a check to the WAMN treasurer.
WAMN offers Naturalist in Training classes starting the middle of January, extending to the end of April. This is many more than the 40 hours required for graduating to full Master Naturalist status. You are welcome to attend every class offered, but if your weekends become busy, the extended schedule means you'll still be able to graduate. The link to our class schedule is TBA
You can submit a membership application by clicking Member Signup / Information. Or you can download the application PDF TBA and mail in the completed form.
We look forward to welcoming you to Arkansas Master Naturalists!
