Virginia Master Naturalists volunteers act as educators, citizen scientists, and environmental stewards to help Virginia conserve and manage natural resources and public lands.
Talk with active Master Naturalist volunteers from the Riverine Chapter, see examples of volunteer projects, and have questions answered personally. This information session will be held at the Ashland Branch Library.
Applications for the 2020 Basic Training Course that begins in January, 2020 are available on our website.
For further information about the Information Sessions or becoming a Certified Virginia Master Naturalist volunteer, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
