$825 FOR TUITION, FOOD, AND LODGING.
AN ADDITIONAL $100 FEE IS REQUIRED FOR MASTER NATURALIST CERTIFICATION.

The focus of the Montana Master Naturalist Program is to increase natural history knowledge and promote awareness, understanding, and stewardship of Montana’s natural environment by developing a corps of well-informed citizens dedicated to conservation education and service within their communities.

The Montana Master Naturalist Program is designed for adults who want to stoke their curiosity, deepen their knowledge of the natural world, and give back to their communities in new ways. We offer a range of programs to fit the needs of a diverse community, but all the classes share a common goal of providing participants with the skills to interpret Montana’s flora, fauna, and landscape.

Swan Valley Connections’ 6-day, immersive experience will expose participants to an observation-based study of natural history in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem. Through an in-depth investigation of physiographic complexity, we will encounter a diversity of plant and animal communities living in various ecosystems supported by the unique landscape characteristics of the Swan Valley. Particular attention will be given to forest carnivores, threatened and endangered species, wetland ecology, aquatic systems, fire ecology, and biogeography of NW Montana.

MEALS, LODGING (AT THE HISTORIC BECK HOMESTEAD) AND TRANSPORTATION PROVIDED DURING THE COURSE.
SVC WILL ALSO PROVIDE FIELD GUIDES AND NATURALIST KITS FOR USE IN THE FIELD.
