Taltree Arboretum & Gardens is hosting a spring Indiana Master Naturalist program. This hands-on learning experience and volunteer service opportunity teaches students about the native landscape and local wildlife of Northwest Indiana. The course includes sessions on botany, zoology, geology, water ecology and wildlife conservation taught by area experts.

“Anyone can become a master of nature with this all-inclusive series,” Maddie Grimm, director of education at Taltree Arboretum & Gardens, said. “Beyond learning, students will put their knowledge to work by performing 30 hours of community service to earn their program certificate.”

The 10-week course begins Thursday, March 12 and runs through Thursday, May 14. Classes are held on Thursday mornings. The course cost is $100 and it is open to adults age 18 and over. Participants should dress for the outdoors, whether rain or shine. To register, visit www.taltree.org where you can print an application, or call 219-462-0025.

The Indiana Master Naturalist program is sponsored by the Resource Conservation & Development Councils, Indiana Soil & Water Conservation Districts, Purdue Cooperative Extension Service and Indiana Department of Natural Resources. For more information, visit www.dnr.in.gov.
