Volunteer Naturalist Training
Placerita Canyon Natural Are is holding Volunteer Naturalist Training.
Become a Volunteer Naturalist:
*Learn about the natural environment
*Teach children about nature
*Make a difference in your community
No special background is needed, just a willingness to attend training and to volunteer at least twice a month.
Classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Volunteer Naturalists attend a 9 week training program.
Topics include native plants, ecology, insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, geology, history, and interpretive techniques.
Instructors include noted professionals in the various fields.
The cost of training is $45, which includes all training materials – instruction manual, field guide, T-shirt, and related items.
Other volunteer opportunities are also available at Placerita Canyon Natural Area that don’t require the 9-week training program, such as office helper and trail maintenance team member. Bilingual (English/Spanish) volunteers are especially needed.
