Valley Foothill Watersheds Collaborative
The California Naturalist Program seeks to foster a committed corps of volunteer naturalists and citizen scientists trained and ready to take an active role in natural resource conservation, education, and restoration. The California Naturalist course will introduce you to the wonders of our local ecology and engage you in the stewardship of California’s natural communities. The course will combine a junior college level introductory science course curriculum with guest lecturers, field trips, and project based learning to immerse you in the natural world of the northern Sierra foothills.
Course dates: Wednesday evenings September 5th to October 24th, from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Class meetings will be held at several locations in the Roseville and Rocklin area to take advantage of educational resources and locations for field trips. Proposed class dates are Weds Sept 5th, 12th, Oct 3rd, Oct 10th, Oct 17th, and 24th.
Field trips: Four Saturday field trips, 5.5 to 6.5 hours in length on Sept 8th, 22nd, 29th and Oct 6th. Some trips will start around 7:00 – 9:00 am and end around 3-4 pm and some may start at 11:00 am and end around 5 pm.
