Attend the 2018 Tidewater Master Naturalist Basic Training class! For more information about the basic training, see this page.
I am thrilled to be a graduate of the Tidewater Master Naturalist Class of 2016. The course covered everything from basic ecology to wetlands restoration. The classroom training usually incorporated a hands-on exercise within the instruction. These exercises allowed us to engage our critical thinking skills and also to learn from our instructors and classmates.
