During this Naturalist Training, we will explore effective ways to share your passion for nature in this presentation by Michael Hawk from Jumpstart Nature.

Learn to make any nature topic engaging. Whether a field trip, casual hike, or chance encounter, learn how to make nature experiences fun, engaging, and relevant. You’ll also learn how to connect with your audience and turn experiences into the beginning of a journey of discovery.

NOTE: Even if you are not able to attend, please register for the recorded presentation so you can receive the YouTube link to the recorded video, which will be released within a couple of days of the event.
