Virginia Master Naturalists are volunteer educators, citizen scientists, and stewards helping Virginia conserve and manage natural resources and public lands. The process for becoming a certified Virginia Master Naturalist typically takes 6 to 12 months. One starts by completing a 40-hour basic training course offered by a local chapter of the program. An additional 8 hours of advanced training are also required. An important part of the certification process is the required 40 hours of volunteer service.

The new fully certified Virginia Master Naturalists from the class of 2011 basic training are:
Kathy Scott of Boones Mill, Dick LeRoy of Hardy, Charlotte Hubbard of Boones Mill, Shellie Leete of Rocky Mount and Dale Stellhorn of Moneta.
Interested in Nature? Want to get involved in something cool? 

Calling all citizen scientists and outdoor enthusiasts - our next Virginia Master Naturalist basic training will be held at The Franklin Center in Downtown Rocky Mount beginning March 2012, feel free to email us for more details: or visit our website for the draft schedule of classes hereLearn more about the Virginia Master Naturalist program here!
