California Naturalist and Climate Stewards: certification course calendar
Participatory science is now recognized as a critical component of Earth stewardship that strengthens community involvement, supports science learning, builds scientific literacy, and helps people develop a commitment to place. It's a great time to get outside, and while you're there, we hope you can find ways to contribute to science!
Words Matter: They Can Inspire Hope and They Can Incite Hate Through our actions and our words, we hope to communicate a clear message. The UC California Naturalist community believes in the positive and inspiring power of words. We stand in solidarity with the diverse community of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders against racism and xenophobia. And, we reaffirm our mission to foster a diverse (and inclusive) community of naturalists and promote the stewardship of California’s natural resources through education and service.
Resources: Online Nature Education In response to recent "shelter in place" orders and an increasing demand for online and hybrid delivery courses in general, we curated a list of our favorite online resources for quality California-focused natural history education
