Annual Meeting

Saturday, November 9 –

Sunday, November 10, 2019

Hilton Garden Inn,

Pittsburgh University Place

Pittsburgh, PA

The Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for Pennsylvania Master Naturalist volunteers and trainees to gather, participate in hands-on educational seminars, and receive a large portion of their Advanced Training requirements for the year in one day. It’s also an opportunity for program participants and supporters to network, share new ideas and projects, and to learn from all participants of the program.

It is also time to celebrate our Master Naturalist graduating class of 2018/19 and recognize the accomplishments of alumni Master Naturalists.


Closes by July 15th. Click here (google form link) to submit a proposal or email for more information.


Membership organizations may exhibit for free; however space is limited and priority will be given to groups addressing this year’s meeting theme and location. Nature-themed auction items are greatly appreciated. Please contact Maeve Rafferty at


Hilton Garden Inn, Pittsburgh University Place, will be our home base for the meeting. Rooms have been blocked at a special meeting rate of $129/night + tax for Friday and Saturday nights until 10/08/19.

Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is seeking sponsors for this year’s meeting. Our attendees include citizen volunteers and partners from a variety of regions throughout Pennsylvania. Support will allow us to offer scholarships to allow more of our volunteers to participate and to build meaningful connections by underwriting the cost of meals, class and field sessions, receptions, volunteer recognition ceremony, and much more! Your support is greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged. For more information about our sponsorship levels and request form, please contact Michele Richards at
