The Department of Biology and the Central Virginia Master Naturalists are jointly hosting our third Virginia Master Naturalist Rally on Sweet Briar's campus on 3-5 June 2011.
The weekend is designed to provide educational workshops and activities to enhance the knowledge base, and support the conservation efforts, of Virginia Master Naturalists throughout the Commonwealth. Workshops on a broad array of natural history topics will be led by experts in their fields. The schedule includes time for informal activities on Sweet Briar's 3200 acre campus, and naturalist-led field trips to other sites in central Virginia.
