Anyone interested in becoming a certified naturalist can attend a course sponsored by Idaho Fish and Game’s Lewiston office.

The Idaho Master Naturalist Program develops well-informed volunteers to help educate a public interested in nature, participate in, or guide conservation efforts, or help with fish and wildlife research projects, as well as teach the public about the importance of conservation.

A certified Master Naturalist completes 40 hours of hands-on, experiential classroom and field training about Idaho ecology, plants, animals and natural systems. Participants also complete 40 hours of volunteer work for local conservation agencies; hours can be divided between agencies such as IDFG, US Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers, Idaho State Parks.

Contact Jen Bruns (208) 799-5010, or Dave Eberle, Chapter President, eberledave@cableone.net to learn more about the Lewis and Clark Chapter of the Idaho Master Naturalist Program. Meetings are Jan. 10, Feb. 7 and 21, from 6-8 p.m. at the Idaho Fish and Game office on 16th Street in the Lewiston Orchards.
