Master Conservationist Program - "Planting the Seeds of Conservation"
The Master Conservationist program uses field experiences and online training to cover a broad range of conservation issues and topics. These experiences help Iowans make informed, intelligent choices for a lifestyle of stewardship. Topics include the geological history of Iowa; wildlife diversity; prairies and grasslands; woodlands; wetlands; conservation practices; and planting the seeds of conservation.
Designed for adult learners, participants receive at least 31 hours of online and outdoor hands-on education led by trained professionals in their field. The range of topics provides information that can be useful in service to the community and in their own backyards. Service-learning opportunities are encouraged, but not required to complete the program.
Registration for the 2021 program will be open in February 2021.
