Sugarloaf: The North Shore Stewardship Association is pleased to offer Master Naturalist volunteer training at Sugarloaf Cove.

Minnesota Master Naturalist is a program 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.

Participants will learn about the fascinating geology, plant and animal communities, inland lakes and bogs, ecology and human interactions of the Northwoods, as well as Lake Superior in this course.  The course will run from 9 am to 5 pm every other Saturday for 6 sessions beginning February 23 and ending May 4, 2013.  Field trips will be incorporated into the scheduled class days.
