We are the Northern Neck Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists
We are a Community-Based Natural Resources Volunteer Program.
We are volunteer educators, citizen scientists, and stewards helping Virginia conserve and manage natural resources and public lands.
We must complete a basic training class with a minimum of 40 hours of combined classroom and field experiences, with 25% of that time spent in the field.
We get certified by annually completing 40 hours of service and participating in 8 hours of continuing education.
We are self-governed by a board composed of officers and committee chairs
We recruit members, plan and produce training courses, and work with sponsors/partners to organize volunteer service projects
We graduated our last basic training class in June 2019.
Watch for our announcement of the next basic training class. For more info go to Basic Training.
