Become a Florida Master Naturalist

The Ostego Bay Foundation Inc. is pleased to announce they will be hosting the Coastal Systems module of the University of Florida Master Naturalist Series every Monday beginning on September 13th for 5 weeks. Through classroom, field trip, and practical experience, this Module provides instruction on the general ecology, habitats, vegetation types, wildlife, and conservation issues of Coastal Systems in Florida – Coastal Uplands, Estuarine, and Nearshore Marine Environments. The program also addresses society’s role in coastal areas, developing naturalist interpretation skills, and discusses environmental ethics.

The Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP) is a University of Florida/IFAS Extension environmental education program developed for adult audiences. FMNP courses are provided by Certified Instructors throughout the state of Florida at Extension offices and other environmental education organizations.

The goal of the FMNP is to promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Florida’s natural world. Students of the FMNP promote this goal by sharing their knowledge with family, friends, and through both formal and informal environmental education programs as employees or volunteers at parks, nature centers, eco-tour operations, and other organizations.

Class size is limited. You can learn more and register online by visiting the UF Master Naturalist Program page at https://masternaturalist.ifas.ufl.edu/ or call the Foundation at 239-765-8101.

This event runs from September 13, 2021 to October 11, 2021.
