Still Time To Sign Up For PA Master Naturalist Spring Training In Delaware, Montour Counties

Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is still accepting applications for 2020 spring training sessions set for Delaware and Montour counties.  The deadline for applications is February 15.
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.
The courses will be held in:
-- Delaware County (coordinated by Tyler Arboretum) -- Classes will be held weekly on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m., from Tuesday, April 7 through Tuesday, June 16, with four field sessions held on Saturdays.
-- Montour County (coordinated by Montour Area Recreation Commission).
Since the Pennsylvania Master Naturalist Program began in 2010--  400+ volunteers were trained; 41,000+ hours of volunteer service were donated equaling $960,000+ worth of service; 2,400+ acres restored; 1,000+ waterways improved; and 76,000+ people reached.
For more information on programs, initiatives, upcoming events and how you can get involved, visit the Pennsylvania Master Naturalist website.
