Time to go all natural. Registration for the Chattanooga Audubon Society’s chapter of the Tennessee Naturalist Program is open.

The 10-month educational program will teach the community about the natural history of our state + cover “everything from birds to geology, plants to water ecology.” New to this year, the course will now be open to 16- and 17-year-olds, as long as an adult joins them in each class.

What you’ll do

Learn | The 40-hour course schedule will begin at the end of August. Some classes include topics on astronomy, forests + insects.

Volunteer | All students will complete 40 hours of service in the society’s sanctuaries that span over 500 acres. Projects will cover trail building, invasive species removal + helping with major events.

Create an account + register by Saturday, Aug. 19. Note: Spots are anticipated to fill quickly — you can also contact the organization to join the waitlist for next year.
