Missouri Master Naturalist - Boone's Lick Chapter (Boone Co)


The Missouri Master Naturalist (MMN) program mixes science with service, engaging Missourians in stewardship of the state’s natural resources through science-based education and volunteer community service. The program is provided through a partnership between the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and the University of Missouri Extension.

Master Naturalists receive specialized training regarding nature in the region where chapters are based. Members help MDC and conservation partners through citizen science, educational programs, and stewardship projects.

Participants must be at least 18-years old to register.  You do not have to live in Boone County to participate, but be aware that you'll still be expected to attend the in-person sessions in order to graduate and become certified.
