Check the Utah Master Naturalist landing page for updates on upcoming field courses

In collaboration with the Utah Master Naturalist program, NHMU educators are providing an opportunity for teachers to learn more about Utah's unique and beautiful ecosystems. For the Utah Master Naturalist Watersheds Investigation, teachers will be going out on three-day trips to visit parts of Utah's wetlands. We will be spending time at Logan River, Bear River, and Great Salt Lake. Before this workshop weekend, teachers must complete an online training portion of this course which will be emailed in advance. 

 Come join us while we explore these systems and learn about how they function, the plants and animals that live there, and how they are managed.  Class size is small to maximize your opportunities for learning and having fun!  

Teachers will earn 1.5 USBE credits for attending the field trips and have the opportunity to be certified as a Wetlands Master Naturalist. 

When: Friday, April 12th through Sunday, April 14th 2024 from 8:00am-3:00pm each day.

Where: We will be meeting at the Museum each morning and travel together to field locations throughout the day. 

Who: K-12 public school teachers in Utah (Space is limited. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status. Preference for this workshop's cohort will be given to those who attended the desert course offered earlier in the year.) 

Cost: FREE - all supplies and transportation will be provided. Funded provided through USBE.

Registration has closed, check the Utah Master Naturalist landing page for updates on the next field course.
