  1. George, our staff is working with Tyler Arboretum to offer a training course in 2020. Details will not be posted until October at the earliest. Once we determine a schedule, it will be posted on our website with registration information. Application is online and a link will be provided on our website when open. We are hoping by October. Check back or sign up for our mailing list to receive an email notification of when training courses and registration is announced. Thanks for your interest! Michele

  2. Debbie, I just realized that a staff did not reply. We are now offering courses in Western PA. Allegheny, Washington and Westmoreland are the counties of training courses currently. We will be adding Armstrong in 2020 hopefully. Please go to our website and click on becoming a PA Master Naturalist for links to course details and application. You have to apply online through our website. There is a page and link with instructions. NOTE: 2020 information will not be posted until late October (2019) and the application link will not be live until this time either. I would check back or join our mailing list for announcements of when courses are posted. Hope this helps. Best, Michele

  3. Nicole, did you receive information on how to apply for our program and courses? Sorry – I just realized that I staff may not have responded. We did not hold our 2019 course at WPC so no worries. We are hoping to offer in 2020. You need to apply online through our website- go to becoming a master naturalist and click on the application link. But you’ll want to look to make sure the WPC course is being offered so click on traiing courses. Training information and online application for 2020 courses will not be added until late October. Please check back or join our mailing list for announcements of training courses. Thanks, Michele

  4. Linda,

    Thank you for your interest! You sound like a great candidate for our program. I apologize for the delay. It’s been an overwhelming year given COVID-19 and its impact on our program and communities. Regrettably, we are not yet in Pike County. In fact, we are working on developing a training module for your ecoregion. We anticipate that it will be finished next year. It will take some time. The next steps after the training curriculum will be raising funds to sustain a program in your county and finding a training partner to be able to implement a 50-hour training course in your county. As a nonprofit, fundraising is key. I’m hopeful that our end of year campaign will bring us the support that we need to continue to expand our program to new counties. Although hopeful, it is a challeninging year for fundraising for many nonprofits. And I recognize that so many people are struggling during this time. If you have not already, I encourage you to sign up for our mailing list to keep updated on program advancements. Thank you again for contacting us and your interest. Sincerely, Michele Richards

  5. Hello,is any classes coming for the lancaster Berks area?

  6. Can the PMN program qualify as a 501c3 organization? So many hours of volunteerism; status might make fund-raising easier

    • Garrett,

      PA Master Naturalist is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We do promote annual and all-time volunteer service hours as well as other accomplishments to our funders and general audience on our website and during campaigns. PMN has an ongoing annual campaign to raise funds and reach our goal for the year. Our volunteers are encouraged to accomplish Facebook fundraisers or participate in campaigns such as our Raise the Region event – a 30 hour online fundraising beginning tomorrow (March 9th) at 6 pm and ending at 11:59 on March 10th. We hope that you will participate! Our success is not possible without you and other volunteers. We encourage you to share your personal story of the PMN program’s impact in your life. Your story can be more impactful than numbers of hours. Thanks for your help and support!
