About the Course:

The California Naturalist Program seeks to foster a committed corps of volunteer naturalists and citizen scientists trained and ready to take an active role in natural resource conservation, education, and restoration. The California Naturalist course by Dry Creek Conservancy will introduce you to the wonders of our local ecology and engage you in the stewardship of California’s natural communities. The course will combine a junior college level introductory science course curriculum with guest lecturers, field trips, and project based learning to immerse you in the natural world of California with a focus on the American River Basin Watershed.

Upon fulfilling graduation requirements and volunteer service, participants become certified as California Naturalists and are eligible for an optional four UC Davis Extension Academic Credits for an additional fee paid directly to UC Davis.

The number of registered participants is capped at 25. Registration fees are tiered ranging from is $300.00 to $350.00 plus fees  and will be open through EventBrite or they can be paid via check to avoid fees. Current and recent students may be eligible for a reduced registration fee or scholarship based on need.
