How are you wrapping up your master naturalist year? Maybe you are watching our winter birds to practice for the upcoming Great Backyard Bird Count (https://www.audubon.org/conservation/about-great-backyard-bird-count), or maybe some winter hiking with wildlife mapping. Could it be that you are taking advantage of online continuing education resources? http://www.virginiamasternaturalist.org/continuing-education.html
However you are using or updating your naturalist skills on approved BRFAL projects, be sure to record your hours in the Volunteer Management System! https://virginiamn.volunteersystem.org/UniversalLogin.cfm
Because 2020 has been a special year, hours for maintaining certification are reduced: 20 hours of volunteer service and 4 hours of continuing education. Thanks for all you are doing, all you have done and all you will do in the coming year!
