About Us

Welcome to MMNP

The Maine Master Naturalist Program (MMNP) offers a course that teaches citizens about the nature of our great state. Participants engage in 100 hours of in-depth training and 200+ hours of practice as they learn about Maine’s ecosystems, plants, animals, conservation biology, and so much more.

Students have the opportunity to:

  • Examine nature under the guidance of faculty, scientists, and other professionals
  • Connect with others who share a passion for nature
  • Volunteer time and expertise by becoming a Master Naturalist

Our Vision

We envision a network of Master Naturalist Volunteers who inspire the public to cherish Maine’s natural resources.

Our Mission

Our mission is to train citizen-naturalist volunteers.
