OK Master Naturalists
Do you love the sound of bird songs and want to know who’s singing? Do you want to know how to identify native plants and use them in your landscape to attract birds and butterflies? Do you love nature and want to learn more about natural resources right here in Oklahoma? Then join us as a member of the Oklahoma Master Naturalists! We are a group of volunteers dedicated to learning about and preserving Oklahoma’s rich biological diversity and sharing this knowledge through education, outreach, and service within our communities.
As A Master Naturalist, you will have the opportunity to learn about Oklahoma’s diverse plant and animal life and natural heritage through field trips, specialized trainings, and monthly presentations. We enjoy the fellowship of other “like-minded” Master Naturalists who like to get outdoors and enjoy Nature!
The program offers a series of 5 day-long workshops which will cover basic ecological processes, aquatic, riparian, and urban ecosystems – including forestry and wildlife. Participants will also be able to attend advanced workshops/field trips, focusing on the state’s most outstanding areas including the Tallgrass prairie, Cross Timbers, eastern woodlands and others.
“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”— Iris Murdoch
If the beauty of the great outdoors and experiencing nature up close is something you enjoy, then the Master Naturalist Program may be for you!
