Upcoming Events


  • May 4-May 25
  • 9:00 AM | Macon, GA
  • The Georgia Master Naturalist program was developed by the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources as an adult environmental education program. It is offered as a combination of lectures and field trips to a number of middle Georgia venues. Tailored to Macon and surrounding communities, this program explores natural resources from both an urban and traditional perspective. Session I, this May, will include topics such as: natural history, ecology, invasive species, waste and recycling, forest ecology, and game management, among others. Our speakers, all local experts in their fields, come from a variety of professions. We are fortunate to have professors from local colleges and universities, professional foresters, wildlife biologists as well as presenters from the private sector. Class size is limited. The price for the May session is $80 and includes class materials, entrance fees, and transportation.
