Naturalist class at reservoir

The Upper Wabash Interpretive Services will be holding an Indiana Master Naturalist class at Salamonie Reservoir in the spring.

The Indiana Master Naturalist Program (IMNP) is an educational/volunteer program, developed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and Purdue University Extension to provide Hoosiers who love nature with a hands-on learning experience.

The mission of the IMNP is to bring together natural resources specialists with adult learners to foster an understanding of Indiana's plants, water, soils and wildlife and pro-mote volunteer service in local communities.

The class size is limited to 30 students and there is a fee, which has not yet been determined.
