Continuing Education

Continuing Education (previously known as Advanced Training) is an important part of the program.

To become a Certified Master Naturalist or to complete annual recertification requirements, a minimum of 8 hours of approved training is needed.


Monthly chapter meetings are a convenient way to complete this education. Interesting speakers are scheduled for chapter meetings.

In addition, any Master Naturalist may submit a training opportunity for approval by filling out this form.
