About the program

The Georgia Master Naturalist Program is an Adult Environmental Education Course developed by the University of Georgia (UGA) Cooperative Extension Service and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. It is for those who wish to be more informed about habitats, natural resources and the environment of our state and county. The program is a combination of lectures and outside hands-on learning through field studies developed with research-based scientific knowledge. Participants will hear from experts who manage our natural resources, including faculty from UGA, specialists from the Georgia Forestry Department, Cooperative Extension and Keep Forsyth County Beautiful personnel, and others. The sessions are eight hours each. Topics include Ecology, Wildlife Management, Water Quality/Conservation, Birding, Environmental Awareness, Geology, Agriculture, Urban Forestry, Native Plants, Invasive Plants, Insects and Soil Conservation.
