The Connecticut Audubon Society congratulates the 18 graduates of the Fall 2018 Master Naturalist Training Program at the Center at Fairfield.

In November 2018, the class members from communities throughout Connecticut, completed more than 40 hours of both classroom and field training. Topics in the program were taught by environmental education and conservation professionals from around the state. The graduates will apply their knowledge and skills in varied volunteer capacities at the Center at Fairfield and other Connecticut Audubon centers. From assisting with nature walks and education events, to, helping behind the scenes in the office, nature store and with animal care, the Master Naturalists will contribute their time to a wide variety of projects and activities tailored to their own interests.

Master Naturalist training is for people of all experience levels who want to expand their knowledge of the habitats, plants, animals and natural history of their local communities. It offers the rewards of sharing that knowledge through teaching others about the stewardship of our natural resources, and it provides the opportunity to meet, and work with, those who share the same interests and concerns.

Classes for the 2019 program will be held at each of The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Southwest Region Centers: Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street, Fairfield; Birdcraft, 314 Unquowa Road, Fairfield; and the Coastal Center at Milford Point, 1 Milford Point Road, Milford. For more information call 203-259-6305 ext. 109 or email Program Coordinator Colleen Noyes. The application deadline is August 15, 2019. To download the application, click here.
