Master Naturalist training to be offered at Sugarloaf Cove

Sugarloaf Cove is pleased to announce that naturalist Margie Menzies is offering Master Naturalist volunteer training. The program is developed through the University of Minnesota Extension Service that educates adults about Minnesota's natural resources, empowers them to teach others and provides opportunities to participate in conservation projects.

Students will learn about the fascinating geology, plant and animal communities, inland lakes and bogs, ecology and human interactions of the North Woods, as well as Lake Superior.

The course will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every other Saturday (a three-week gap over the Easter stretch) for six sessions beginning Feb. 22 and ending May 10. Field trips will be incorporated into the scheduled class days.

The course cost is $200 and includes manuals and materials.
