“A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.”
-John James Audubon
The California Naturalist program will provide you with the knowledge, experience and organizations you need to take action in your community. You will learn new concepts, skills and techniques all designed to be put use toward real changes you can see. Community leaders can learn how to better plan a city, teachers can learn how to incorporate sustainable living topics into their lessons and we all can learn to walk with a smaller footprint.
The course will empower you to attend those county supervisors meetings with credible information at your finger tips.
You will meet like minded people in your area, work with non-profit groups who are doing conservation work, collecting data for a scientific study or lobbying the state congress.
You will feel confident to speak publicly about natural resource issues either on a nature walk or in a board room.
If you want to do something to better your community and are committed to improving the environment, the California Naturalist Program is for you!
“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
