Registration is open for the Eastern Shore Master Naturalists
2014 Basic Training Course
The training, which consists of classroom and field sessions, offers an overview of the special character of the Shore’s natural history led by experts in their field. Topics covered include botany, geology, forestry, entomology, and ornithology, as well as the natural processes that create the barrier islands and the bayside coasts.
No special skills or knowledge are required – just a curiosity about the Shore’s environment and ecology and how it all works together. The training is also an ideal way to meet others with similar interests, and it provides an avenue for future participation in citizen science projects, stewardship and outreach.
Fee for the 10-week course: $95
covers all materials and field trips
Space is limited and pre-registration is necessary
