Sharing Utah's Natural World!

Utah's spectacular natural world inspires exploration, understanding, and stewardship. Here at Utah Master Naturalist, our mission is to train volunteers and professionals who promote stewardship of natural resources within their communities by providing education, outreach, and service. We offer several field courses each year to help you in your lifelong pursuit of knowledge and skills. Visit the about page for more information on how you can become a Utah Master Naturalist.

NEW! Online Courses
Beginning this year, Utah Master Naturalist is offering a short online course to teach the basic concepts of each field course.  Each participant must complete the corresponding online course prior to attending a field course.  An online course can be completed in about two days of work, and you will be given access beginning one month prior to each field course.  As a result, each field course will now be 3 or 4 days long.
