Salamonie Lake offers Indiana Master Naturalist class
Upper Wabash Interpretive Services will hold an Indiana Master Naturalist class at Salamonie Lake from March 22 through May 24 for people who love nature and want to share their enthusiasm with others.
Classes are mostly on Thursdays from 6-9 p.m., with some Saturdays scheduled as well.
The Indiana Master Naturalist Program is an educational/volunteer program developed by the DNR and Purdue University Extension. IMNP brings together natural resources specialists and adult learners to foster better understanding of Indiana's plants, water, soils and wildlife. Participants will be able to use their newly learned skills as volunteer interpretive naturalists, working with UWIS.
UWIS serves J. Edward Roush Fish & Wildlife Area, Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes, and Ouabache State Park.
Class size will be limited to 30 students. The fee for the class is $75. The registration deadline is March 15. For more information, call Upper Wabash Interpretive Services at (260) 468-2127. Registration forms are available by calling UWIS or visiting dnr.IN.gov/uwis.
The standard property entrance fee will be waived for students.
