Become an instructor for the Minnesota Master Naturalist program

Minnesota Master Naturalist is a volunteer training program in which adults learn about Minnesota’s natural resources, are trained to be stewards of our environment, and learn how to teach these skills to others. Your organization can offer these courses by sending a staff member to an instructor training course.  

Instructors are trained to lead Minnesota Master Naturalist classes in all three biome areas: Big Woods, Big Rivers; Prairies and Potholes; and North Woods, Great Lakes. All class materials are provided at no cost to instructors, and each 40 hour class you lead as an instructor can be scheduled to best fit the needs of instructors and students.

Become part of a statewide effort to increase natural resource volunteering in citizen science, interpretation, program support and stewardship throughout Minnesota and apply to the Master Naturalist instructor program today!
