SCPD, FELC offering volunteer naturalist certification

Seneca County Park District and Franciscan Earth Literacy Center are partnering to offer an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist course this fall.

At the end of the course, attendees would be certified volunteer naturalists through The Ohio State University Extension course. Classes are to take place 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays and 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturdays Sept. 11 through Nov. 3.

Students are to learn about the biology, ecology and natural history of Ohio from the state’s leading experts. They then become part of a local and statewide network of dedicated volunteers who apply their talents and passion to protecting, restoring and understanding Ohio’s natural treasures.

Requirements for certification include completing 40 hours of instruction and performing 40 hours of approved volunteer service within the first year. After the first year, 20 hours of volunteer service and eight hours of advanced training are required annually.

Course locations are to vary from week to week within Seneca County.
