What is a Master Naturalist?
Master Naturalists are citizen volunteers dedicated to conservation education and service within their communities. To become a certified Master Naturalist, one must successfully complete a comprehensive training program encompassing diverse facets of the natural world. Once certified, the Master Naturalist is expected to perform a number of hours of volunteer service each year and expand and maintain their knowledge via continuing education programs.
LMNGBR provides this training via scientific, research-based education to the general public in order to foster a better understanding of the local natural ecosystems and promote conservation and preservation of native plant and animal life and habitats within the Greater Baton Rouge Area.
