California Naturalist Volunteer Training
To be held at the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum
Do you enjoy learning about the natural world? Would you like to learn about the amazing and unique ecology of California? If so, consider becoming a California Naturalist!
The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum in Rancho Dominguez (next to Carson, Long Beach and Compton) in the South Bay is hosting a California Naturalist Volunteer Training beginning January 23rd and running through April 30th.
California Naturalist volunteers complete a 40+ hour hands-on course with expert instructors and fellow learners – studying natural history, environmental interpretation, and conservation stewardship.
These classes cover the natural and cultural history of California, with an in-depth look at our South Bay ecology. Through field trips, classroom instruction and hands-on exercises, participants will observe and learn about the variety of plant and animal communities of our region. Through the course, participants will develop their ability to observe nature and will learn tools to improve these skills. In addition, participants will improve their communication skills by sharing knowledge with other participants and by working on a group project.
The classes will be held every Saturday from 10:00am- 1:00pm from late January through late April. Three Saturday field trips will be on February 20, April 2nd, and April 23rd. The cost for the course is $300.
