Where better to take the Northwoods-Great Lakes Master Naturalist course than right on the shores of Lake Superior at Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center? Join Sugarloaf naturalist Margie Menzies at Sugarloaf Cove as she teaches another Master Naturalist course.

This 40 hour hands on course program was developed through the University of Minnesota Extension Service to educate adults about Minnesota’s natural resources, empowers them to teach others and provides opportunities to participate in conservation projects.

You will learn about the fascinating geology, plant and animal communities, inland lakes and bogs, ecology and human interactions of the Northwoods, as well as Lake Superior in this course.

The course will run from 9 am to 5 pm every other Saturday for 6 sessions beginning February 24 and ending May 12, 2018.  Field trips will be incorporated into the scheduled class days. A capstone project is expected of participants, as well as the commitment to volunteer for 40 hours during the year.

Registration is now open. Visit Minnesota Master Naturalist to register.

The course cost is $275 and includes course manuals and materials. Scholarships are available.
