Detailed Information:
The Arizona Master Naturalist Program mission is to establish and maintain a corps of well-informed volunteers to deliver quality environmental education programs and promote stewardship of Arizona's natural environment.

To accomplish this mission, four goals have been established:
-Develop a better-informed public and greater citizen participation in decision making processes pertaining to the natural resources of our region.
-Increase volunteer pool for environmental education programs.
-Train a pool of volunteer naturalists to further environmental education in Northern Arizona.
-Have a fun and enriching experience in the attainment of personal growth and lifelong learning.
To accomplish these goals, the UA Cooperative Extension Service Educational Specialist has established a 9-week Master Naturalist training sequence of classroom work and field work. In Northern Arizona, the program is fortunate to be able to draw from numerous academic and agency resources for speakers and trainers. The program requires candidates to make presentations, maintain a log of volunteer hours, and attend monthly continuing education classes.
