The Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP) is an adult education UF/IFAS Extension program developed by the University of Florida and provided by many Extension offices and participating organizations throughout the state of Florida. FMNP training will benefit persons interested in learning more about Florida’s environment or wishing to increase their knowledge for use in education programs as volunteers, employees, ecotourism guides, and others.
The FMNP consists of three Core Modules
- Freshwater Wetlands
- Coastal Systems
- Upland Habitats
Each Module is 40 contact hours of classroom learning, field trips and practical experience. Each Module is $225 and includes detailed course manuals and, upon completion, FMNP certificates, patches, and pins denoting their area of expertise (e.g., Wetlands Master Naturalist) and registration in the online FMNP Graduate Database. Students who choose to complete all three Modules will become Florida Master Naturalists and will receive a plaque, Master Naturalist pin, and registration in the online Master Naturalist Honor Roll Database. The FMNP does not provide university credit toward a degree-seeking program.
Special Topics Modules:
The FMNP also offers four Special Topics modules of 24 contact hours including classroom learning, field trips and practical experience. Each Special Topics module is $150 and includes detailed course manuals and, upon completion, FMNP certificates and pins denoting their area of expertise (e.g., Conservation Science etc.). The FMNP does not provide university credit toward a degree-seeking program.
