Master Naturalist certification classed to be held at Muscatatuck refuge

The Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting an Indiana “Master Naturalist” class for adults starting next month.

Course topics will cover a different natural history topic each week. Subjects will include animals, wetlands, botany, tree identification, invasive plants, geology, fossils, and more.

Participants who attend six of the eight course sessions and complete volunteer work will receive a Master Naturalist certificate and a pin.

Classes will be on Wednesdays in March and April from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in the evenings. The classes are being organized by the Muscatatuck Wildlife Society, a not for profit group that supports the refuge.

The cost to take part is $35 to cover course materials. Registration is required. For more information or to register, you can contact Park Ranger Donna Stanley at 812-522-4352 or e-mail [email protected].
