Here's your chance to get away from the hustle and bustle, whether you're a longtime resident of St. Johns County and Northeast Florida or a visitor to the area.

Florida Master Naturalist Program E-mail
fmnp_color_small.jpg

November, 2014

Ripple Effect Ecotours, in partnership with University of Florida's Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, is now offering the Coastal Module of the Florida Master Naturalist Program.

St. Augustine, FL—Learning more about Florida’s natural environment now is possible through the Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP), an environmental education extension program being offered in partnership with the University of Florida-Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF-IFAS) and participating organizations throughout the state. The FMNP both informs and prepares persons to share information about Florida’s natural world and environmental history.

Training in Florida’s Coastal systems, the second of three ecosystem modules included in the FMNP, will be available at the Whitney Laboratory in the Town of Marineland, and completion of the 40-hour program results in registration in the UF-IFAS Master Naturalist Program database as a FMNP Coastal Systems Naturalist.

The FMNP is not a degree-seeking program. The program is appropriate for both the novice and the highly skilled environmental professional.

Certified FMNP Provider: Ripple Effect Ecotours:  Chris Kelley, Danny Lippi, and Joe Woodbury will be instructing the class with guest speakers from the Dolphin Conservation Field Station, University of Florida's Whitney Lab and the Marineland Dolphin Adventure.

Cost: $225, which includes all field trips, 40 contact hours of instruction, a comprehensive student reference workbook, and, upon completion, registration in the UF FMNP database as a Coastal Naturalist. A UF-IFAS certificate of achievement, embroidered FMNP patch, and FMNP Coastal lapel pin also will be provided at completion.
