Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Training

OHIO CERTIFIED VOLUNTEER NATURALIST TRAINING

 

The training consists of 40 hours of instruction which is mostly done field trip style.  We try to provide the real settings or habitat that best suits the animals, bugs, birds, plants and reptiles we are learning about.  So people that take the class will need to drive or carpool to the class site. We will stay away from classroom lectures and do as much hands on learning as possible.

Our first meeting is an introductory one at the  OSU Extension office in Somerset.  The starting date is April 26th at 6:00pm. The meeting will last until till 8:00pm.

Classes will meet twice a week and will usually be 2 or 3 hours long.  The days of the classes are Saturdays and Wednesdays with one exception.  If you are interested in signing up for the OCVN training please call the Perry County Extension Office at (740) 743-1602. Their friendly staff will help you.

People that take the training will not complete their OCVN requirements until they volunteer 40 hours their first year at either a state park or a local one. Training classes given are in partnership with OSU but, are not for credit. These are not college credit classes.

Certification cost will be approximately $65 and will cover the training manual and name tag. Final cost to be determined by the State of Ohio
