Alabama Master Naturalist (AMN) Program
The Alabama Master Naturalist program is a new 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 will also 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.
When a person first enrolls in the Alabama Master Naturalist Program, they enter at the AMN trainee level. The AMN trainee level requires that the participant complete a 40-hour basic training course and 30 hours of volunteer service (approximately 15 hours of the volunteer service is completed as a part of a class project). Once they complete the basic training and volunteer service requirements during the first year, they become an Alabama Master Naturalist in Training. To become a fully certified Alabama Master Naturalist, they must complete 30 more hours of advanced course work over the next three years and complete 30 hours of volunteer service per year.
