Allegheny Land Trust: First PA Master Naturalist Program Coming To Southwest PA

The Allegheny Land Trust Wednesday announced the Pennsylvania Master Naturalist Program is coming to Southwest Pennsylvania for the first time.
Founded in 2010, Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is a statewide partnership initiative that aims to connect people with their local ecosystems through intensive natural science training and local conservation service work.
It is a venture directed toward developing a local corps of master volunteers and service providers to offer education, outreach and service dedicated to the understanding and management of natural areas within their communities.
A Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is an individual with a passion for the natural world who participates in an intensive training program and uses his or her knowledge by giving back to the community through volunteer service.
This year-round program has three components to the 55-hour training: an initial volunteer training course, volunteer service hours, and advanced training classes.
Funding for the program is provided by the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Department of Environmental Protection, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, National Science Foundation and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
