Grassroots Ecology

Course Description

Our California Naturalist class will introduce you to the wonders of nature and engage you in the stewardship of California’s natural communities. The course will utilize a combination of science curriculum, guest lecturers, field trips and project based learning to immerse you in the natural world of the San Francisco Peninsula.

Participants become part of a community of graduates from previous years. This group will have opportunities to network and learn together into the future.

Dates: Grassroots Ecology will be offering our next California Naturalist certification through our Summer 2023 Naturalist Internship. Sign up for Grassroots Ecology’s newsletter to receive the program and application announcement in the spring.
