Acadiana Master Naturalists and Acadiana Master Naturalist-Birding
The purpose of the AMN Program is to educate Louisiana citizens about their flora and fauna, environment, ecosystem, and natural history. Each program
consists of a 2-hour introduction and 10, 6-hour workshops.
The Acadiana Master Naturalists provide a program beginning in January and ending in late May or early June. Workshops will cover topics in the following
categories: ecology, ecosystems, geology, plants, animals, astronomy and restoration.
The AMN-Birding program begins in July and ends in April the following year. This program is all about birds, how to identify by sight and sound, as well
as habits that can help in identification. Field trips for this program will cover the Acadiana Parishes and Cameron parish so that we can find the most
diverse species possible.
