Each Utah Master Naturalist course is based in Utah's watersheds, deserts, mountains, and dark skies. You will spend approximately 16 hours online and 24 hours in the field learning about, exploring, and conserving Utah's beautiful, natural ecosystems. In addition to learning from the main instructors, courses include presentations and field trips led by various resource experts. Class sizes are small to maximize learning and fun! Join us to explore how these systems are managed, how they function, and the diverse species that live within them.
