Connecticut Audubon Society Center
1361 Main Street

Learn about our region’s natural history through Connecticut Audubon’s Master Naturalist program, an eight-week series of field experiences.

Program Purpose
To train a corps of volunteers to support our mission, facilities as well as providing stewards for Central Connecticut

Climate Change; Nature Interpretation, Part 1
The first half of the program will focus on the science of climate change, as well as how to effectively communicate about climate change with the general public. This will flow right into how operating a center and conducting regular programming for the public requires an understanding as to how to best handle the public to assure a quality experience for all. Session will include volunteers working in teams in putting together their own nature program.
Instructor: Michelle Eckman

Training Cost: $205 members, $260 nonmembers (includes membership)

Post Training Expectation: In exchange for a heavily discounted training cost, trained volunteers are expected to contribute a minimum of 40 volunteer hours to the organization.
What to bring to class: Bring your enthusiasm for the great outdoors, snacks, a bagged lunch, a water bottle and wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes appropriate for the day’s weather. Most days we will spend at least a portion of the class outside.
