Join The Whale Museum for Online Naturalist Training
From The Whale Museum
We’ve been training marine naturalists since 1994.
Our marine naturalist training course is an intensive six-day overview of the natural history of the San Juan Islands and the marine waters of Washington and Southern British Columbia, known as the Salish Sea.
Summer’s session will be online July 19-24.
This course includes an in-depth treatment of the ecology and conservation of local marine species, presented by highly trained local naturalists, environmental educators and scientists.
The upcoming summer session will be a dynamic, high-quality virtual experience that leaves graduates qualified as regional professionals or volunteer naturalists.
You can still earn a Whale Museum naturalist certification by completing an extra 10-hour practicum, which can be arranged during this course. Completion of this course also entitles you to become a member of the Salish Sea Association of Marine Naturalists.
