Coastal Naturalist Training

Falll 2020

September 9th - October 14th, 2020

Stay Tuned for future Naturalist Training opportunities. 

The Coastal Naturalist Training is a 6-week course hosted in collaboration with Trinidad Coastal Land Trust that will introduce you to the wonders of our local coastal ecology and engage you in the stewardship of California’s natural communities. The course will combine Zoom classroom sessions with distanced field sessions in small groups to immerse you in the natural diversity of Humboldt’s coastal environments while protecting our community from the further spread of COVID-19. Guest lecturers and field instructors include professors, geologists, botanists, biologists, long-time naturalists, and other local experts. The course is for community members interested in expanding their knowledge of the coast, as well as students, teachers, naturalists, and environmental educators seeking professional development. While you may take the course strictly for your own enjoyment, the course will also prepare you to become an active volunteer with Friends of the Dunes, Trinidad Coastal Land Trust, or other environmental organizations.
