Those with an interest in learning about natural resources, environmental science and the natural resources of the Wabash Valley are urged to attend the Indiana Master Naturalist (IMN) program.
The program is an eight-week training series, which features modules covering natural resource education. It will take place in the Terre Haute area beginning Thursday, Sept. 9, and will conclude Thursday, Oct. 28.
Class times are 9 a.m.-noon, each Thursday. Cost is $75, which covers all fees.
The IMN program brings together natural resource specialists with adult learners to foster an understanding of Indiana's plants, water resources, soils and wildlife. IMN students participate in eight hands-on learning sessions and then help provide volunteer services to the local community.
After completing the eight class modules, participants can accrue 24 hours of community service to complete their certification.
The IMN program is sponsored locally by Sycamore Trails Resource Conservation and Development Council, a non-profit serving west central Indiana.
Program questions may be directed to Purdue Extension educator Jim Luzar at 812-462-3371.
Seats are limited so applying early is encouraged.
