About the Louisiana Master Naturalists Program
The Louisiana Master Naturalist Program warmly welcomes new members. This is an emerging opportunity for citizens to expand or sharpen their skills in natural history, with special focus on the diverse habitats of the Sportsman’s Paradise, Louisiana. The Louisiana Master Naturalist, Northwest Chapter has been offering classes since Spring 2014.
Master Naturalists are citizens who have taken the time to go through a formal training program covering diverse aspects of the ecosystem they are a part of, and then volunteer to pass that information along to others.
We encourage you to enter the LMNP certification program and contribute to the well being and expanding knowledge-base in natural history in Louisiana.
To become a Master Naturalist, you must attend courses held here in the Ark-La-Tex, pass an exam, contribute volunteer hours and pay modest dues. To continue being a Master Naturalist, you must participate in continuing education each year, and volunteer in the community in ways that forward peoples’ interest in and understanding of nature. There are seven chapters around the State, and we are united under a State board.
