Joshua Tree Master Naturalist Certificate

If you love observing nature and learning about Joshua Tree National Park, expand your knowledge through the Joshua Tree Master Naturalist Series. Comprehensive courses on key Joshua Tree topics are designed to broaden your understanding of the ecology, plants, geology, wildlife and history of the park. Through field-based excursions and lectures, you’ll cultivate observation skills that are the hallmark of a good naturalist. When you complete eight courses, of your choice, you will receive your “Joshua Tree Master Naturalist” certification. Certification may be completed over time. These courses are approved for credit from UC Riveside Extension, but credit is not required for the certificate.
