Welcome to the Fairfax Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists
Are you curious about nature, enjoy the outdoors, and want to be part of natural resource management and conservation in Virginia? You are a perfect candidate to become a Virginia Master Naturalist. Virginia Master Naturalists are volunteer educators, citizen scientists, and stewards helping Virginia conserve and manage natural resources and public lands.
The Virginia Master Naturalist Program is a statewide corps of volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. Interested Virginians become Master Naturalists through training and volunteer service.
