2021 Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Course
Learn about Ohio’s Natural History! The Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Program (OCVN) is a training program run through OSU Extention. Participants complete training in geology, plants, insects, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, ecology, stewardship and interpretation.
This year’s class will be a hybrid of virtual classes and in-person field days. Mondays and Fridays, we will meet via zoom for interactive classes, assignments, and group work. (Don’t worry! You won’t be stuck in front of the computer all day!) On Wednesdays, we will meet outside at The Wilderness Center for field investigations. Covid-19 requirements may change as we approach the start of class. If they do, we will adjust and make any necessary changes. You will be kept informed of any changes, and if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Cost: $195; Includes all course materials which will be mailed to you, books, and instruction.
