Description: The Alabama Master Naturalist Program is offering its first training in the Wiregrass Region of Alabama starting in January, 2018 and ending in April, 2018. This is a statewide program whose goal is to help promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Alabama's natural world among Alabama's citizens and visitors. In addition, the AMN program strives to develop a statewide corps of well-informed volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. To become fully trained, a participant is required to complete 40-hours of basic training (see the list of the sessions for the Wiregrass training). It is preferred that participants sign-up for the entire 40-hours but participants are given the option of signing up for individual classes if it better meets their schedule. They will not be considered as having completed their training until they have attended all 8 sessions. Each session will begin at 9 am and go until around 4 pm each day. Cost: If you register for all eight sessions, the price is $200.00 If you choose to register for only some of the classes, the price is $30.00 per session. We are still working in the locations for each of the sessions as we want to make sure we use locations within the Wiregrass Region that are complimentary to the session topics.

Description: These classes are designed for the farmers who need to take the private pesticide applicator test in order to purchase restricted use products. However, we will be discussing chemical safety and sprayer calibration at this class, so anyone who sprays pesticides on a large scale will benefit from this training even if a restricted pesticide license is not needed. If you would like to attend any of these classes call the Extension Office of the County you want to attend and make your reservation as seating is limited in some locations. A fee of $20 will be charged for this training and testing. An additional licensing fee of $25 will be sent to the Department of Agriculture and Industries by the applicant. The licensing fee is not included in the training and testing fee. Please plan to pay with a check (checks are preferred) made out the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) in the amount of $20 or with the correct cash amount. If you need more information contact Jessica Kelton (334)405-0699 or Neil Kelly (334)714-6910.
