CURE is very excited to partner with the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program and offer a Prairies and Potholes certification training. This course is being taught by longtime CURE members and Master Naturalists Kylene Olson, Joe Hauger and Peg Furshong at the CURE Office. The sessions will begin on Tuesday,
March 8th and run for 11 weeks until May 17th. They will start at 6pm and end at 8:30 pm with two all day field days on Saturday, April 23rd and Saturday, May 14th. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory for certification.
The Mission of the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program is to promote awareness, understanding, and stewardship of Minnesota’s natural environment by developing a corps of well-informed citizens dedicated to conservation education and service within their communities.
Any adult who is curious and enjoys learning about the natural world, shares that knowledge with others, and supports conservation can be a Minnesota Master Naturalist Volunteer. If you enjoy hiking, bird watching, following tracks, or identifying wildflowers, you’ll love being a Minnesota Master Naturalist Volunteer. Minnesota Master Naturalist Volunteers are a motivated group of fun and interesting people: teacher, retired professionals, nature guides, hunters, eco-tour operators, farms, many CURE members and…YOU!
You will need to register at the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program www.minnesotamasternaturalist.org, the fee is $275 and there are a limited number of scholarships available.
