Florida Master Naturalist Program course offered at University Campus November 4-6
The Florida Master Naturalist Program, through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is offering an in-person course on environmental interpretation at Saint Leo University from Friday, November 4, through Sunday, November 6. Registration closes at noon on Monday, October 31. The lead is Cheryl Berry, instructor of biology and life sciences and ACES Program co-director.
Registration fees (per person) are $165 (includes PDF of the manual) or $195 (includes PDF and bound copy of the manual). Registration payment must be received no later than one week prior to the course start date.
The course format is Hybrid: the first class is Live online and the other two classes are in-person. Each day includes hands-on activities and learning experiences related to environmental interpretation. Student presentations are completed during class and presented as a group. Typically, preparation outside of class is not necessary; however, there may be some online work as a replacement for some in-person class time.
There will also be some time outdoors. There is walking involved, not extensive or rigorous, but attendees should dress for the weather. If you have any concerns about the physical demands, please contact the instructor.
For any questions, contact Dr. Eric Hannel, adjunct faculty member and president of the Chipco Preserve at (850) 735-3386 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
