2019 Naturalist Certificate Program

Become an ecoregional expert, enhance your employability!
 
Siskiyou Field Institute developed its Naturalist Certification program to promote deeper knowledge of Klamath Siskiyou ecology. If you’re in the job market, this certification can enhance your job skills and employability. What you learn will also enrich your retirement and volunteer experiences. Are you interested in becoming a citizen scientist? Learn from expert instructors, then pass along that natural science knowledge investigating in the field or working as an interpreter. Our program provides a broad natural-history overview with specific learning experiences in four different categories: Species, Habitats, Ecological Processes and Skills. As you attend courses and comment on assigned readings, you’ll begin to recognize and understand this region’s unique flora, fauna and ecological processes.

How it works:

• Enroll in the Naturalist Certificate program by paying a fee (currently $25)

• We will then mail you a series of supplemental readings. You will be required to report on these in writing.

• Earn credits as you learn. Complete 50 hours of coursework with at least one field course in each category listed in the table below.

Please note: Hours earned toward the certificate are in parentheses and may not match the hours you actually spend in the course. We’ll be happy to assist you in designing your program. Please visit www.thesfi.org or call 541-597-8530.
