This certification connects you with a diverse knowledge base in Louisiana natural history by offering academic lectures and in-the-field workshops taught by experts in the disciplines of ecology, biology, geomorphology, and resource management. The Master Naturalist Program enables participants to learn about the nature of Louisiana's varied physiographic regions, its flora and fauna, and connections between our valued environment, culture, and economy.
