Free master naturalist training in 2019

Free master naturalist training in 2019

Bellevue has a rich ecosystem with animals such as cougars, bear and bobcat. Volunteer master naturalists help make that balance possible. Applications are now being accepted for training in 2019.

The program, open to adults, will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Jan. 24 through April 11, 5:30-8 p.m., at the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center, 1625 118th Ave. SE. Participants will learn about our area’s wildlife, ecology, hydrology, geology, natural resource management and cultural history through in-class lectures, field trips, workshops and restoration projects in Bellevue.

Volunteers who complete the program will assist park rangers with environmental education and interpretation, habitat restoration and monitoring, nature hikes, wetland monitoring, community volunteer projects and canoe tours. Master naturalists are expected to provide 100 hours of community service to Bellevue’s natural resource program within two years.

Ideal candidates will have an enthusiasm for learning and a passion for the outdoors. Bellevue residents will have priority for selection; residents of other cities will be considered if space allows.

To apply, complete and return by mail an application packet available at Master Naturalist. Packets must be postmarked by Nov. 30.
