Master Naturalist advanced training

Minnesota Master Naturalists are required to log 40 hours of volunteer service and participate in 8 hours of advanced training annually.

Courses that meet training requirements are offered throughout the state and throughout the year. These courses provide Master Naturalists and the public with opportunities to participate in recreational activities and learn about new natural resource topics. Topics build on the biome curriculum.

We have offered hundreds of advanced courses since the inception of the program, including:

  • Monarch larvae monitoring

  • Phenology volunteer training

  • Bird banding

  • Spiders workshop

  • Stream ecology

Our annual Gathering Partners conference also includes workshops that count toward meeting this requirement.
