View the recorded video here

For nature enthusiasts at any level, the California Naturalist program is an introduction to the wonders of our unique ecology and the study and stewardship of California’s environment. The curriculum uses science, hands-on learning, problem-solving, community science, and public service to instill a deep appreciation for the biodiversity of the state and to inspire individuals to become stewards of their local resources. After completing the course requirements, certified California Naturalists continue their journey of lifelong learning using the tools gained in the course, and stay engaged in many conservation efforts. This is an opportunity to learn about the program, its impacts, and ways you can get involved.
