CNSDC CA Naturalist Certification course

Jan 9,2018 - Mar 13,2018 Time: 5:30 pm - 8:30 am
COASTAL NORTH SAN DIEGO CA NATURALIST CERTIFICATION COURSE: Preserve Calavera is partnering with the UCSD Natural Reserve System to offer the UC California Naturalist certification course. This engaging class will provide hands-on instruction and exposure to real world environmental projects designed to inspire adults to become active citizen scientists and enhance their personal connection with the natural world. The course culminates with each participant completing a capstone project. Upon completing certification requirements, participants are eligible for four academic credits through UC Davis Extension for an additional nominal fee.  After the class ends, participants are expected to volunteer 40 hours of their time sharing their expertise. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the natural world with others who share similar interests. The class will be meeting on Tuesday evenings, 5:30 - 8:30 pm from January 9, 2018  through March 13, 2018 at the Buena Vista Lagoon Nature Center in Oceanside.  In addition there will be 4 required half day Saturday field trips and 2-3 optional 2 hr field trips. We would like to emphasize that this can be a time-demanding class.  You will have reading and homework each week as well as a capstone project involving 8-10 hours outside of class.  Please take into consideration your transportation time and other commitments before registering.  You may find it helpful to start the homework before hand.  If you have any questions, please contact Paige @ Registration is now open.  The fee for the course is $250.  There are a limited-number of partial scholarships based upon need which you need to request from at the time of registration.   The class is limited to 25 participants.  Your registration and payment ensures your spot in the class.  The fee is 100% refundable before the first class, 50% refundable after the first class and non-refundable thereafter (after second class). Participants are required to attend all classes.
