Ontario Master Naturalist Program announces Fall Workshop schedule

August 12, 2015 – Orillia, ON

The inaugural Ontario Master Naturalist Program (OMNP), which was launched by Lakehead University and Ontario Nature earlier this year, will be offering a series of workshops this fall based on topics of special interest to naturalists.

The workshops are open to the general public and are designed as general interest sessions and are not part of the OMNP certificate program. The topics range from Invasive Species and Mushroom Identification to Species at Risk and Field Sketching.

"These are topics that we found were of special interest to our first class of Master Naturalists," said OMNP coordinator Bob Bowles. "By dedicating an entire workshop to these specialized topics, we hope to enhance the skills and knowledge of participants through classroom discussion and fieldwork."

The workshops take place on four Saturday mornings beginning with Invasive Species on Saturday, August 29. The cost is $40 per workshop or $220 for the series (plus HST). For program details and to register online, visit: lakeheadu.ca/masternaturalist.
