Establishing a Baton Rouge Master Naturalist Program

September 26, 2014 6:00 PM

Are you interested in helping establish a Master Naturalist Program for Baton Rouge?

Louisiana Wildlife Federation (LWF) will be hosting the initial exploratory meeting for a potential Master Naturalist Program in Baton Rouge at the Bluebonnet Branch Library on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting will be to bring together individuals interested in leading and organizing a Baton Rouge chapter of the Louisiana Master Naturalist Program (LMNP).

The purpose of a master naturalist program is to educate the general public on the natural world and promote conservation of native flora and fauna. The program conducts natural history-oriented training workshops to educate participants on native plants and animals, their natural habitats, and their importance to our ecosystem. Certification will be awarded to those that complete the training.

Please note that the potential Baton Rogue Master Naturalist Program is not a program under the Louisiana Wildlife Federation. LWF will host the initial exploratory meeting, but further consideration of the program will depend on interested persons taking lead and organizing an official Baton Rouge chapter of the LMNP.
