The City of Bellevue is hosting the fourth annual Master Naturalist Training Program - a free 13 weeks program that educates volunteers on the importance of ecological restoration and preservation. Through a series of in-class lectures, field trips, workshops and restoration projects, volunteers will learn about the area's wildlife ecology, wetland management, forest restoration, plant identification, cultural history and much more. In exchange for this free environmental training, naturalists are expected to reciprocate at least 5 volunteer hours per month up to 100 hours of service in the care of Bellevue's natural resources. Applications are due Friday, January 11, 2013. Preference will be given to Bellevue residents.
