A training in the Upper Valley for naturalists

Today’s Earth Day week announcement is about a learning opportunity… for people who love the outdoors and the natural world and who want to share that passion with others.

The Upper Valley Land Trust and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science are co-sponsoring an Upper Valley Naturalist Training from April 26 through May 20, 2012. And there are still a few openings!

The training program is an in-depth introduction to the ecosystems and wildlife found in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire.

Program Coordinator Anna Slack said the training, the first of its kind offered by UVLT, is for the entry-level naturalist as well as more seasoned naturalists.

It is for people who have the interest and who want to share their knowledge with the larger community.

Local experts will present a range of topics including geology, plant communities, animal tracks and signs, wetland ecology, birds, and interpretive techniques.

It will include four evening classes and four weekend field sessions. Cost: $100 with a 25% discount for members of UVLT or VINS, seniors, and students.

For information about this and other educational programs, contact Lorie Hood or Anna Slack at 603-643-6626 or visit www.uvlt.org.
