Maryland Master Naturalist Advanced Training Program

On June 10, 9 am - 2 pm, the Maryland Master Naturalist Program will host it's first Advanced Training Program at UME-CMREC on Bald Eagles (see below for more information and registration link). Participation is limited to 20 registrants, and preference will be given to current certified MNs, though interns/trainees are welcome to register and will be admitted on a space-available basis.

Bald eagles are important members of the environment, just like all top predators. Removed from the Endangered Species List in 2007, their successful comeback has provided many lessons in environmental protection and species conservation. In this half-day seminar, attendees will learn about bald eagle biology, life history, continued conservation efforts, and current research. In addition, materials and specimens will be used for a hands-on experience in order to give you the necessary knowledge and tools to go forth and help educate others about our esteemed national bird. After a brown bag lunch, the workshop will travel to an active bald eagle nest to see where a local pair make their home and raise their young. There will be a short discussion and then we welcome your questions as well as your own bald eagle stories.
