The 6th Annual State Master Naturalist meeting is now a memory. I think we can call it a success. If anyone wishes to post pictures, please send them to me: email@example.com
You will soon be receiving a survey to evaluate this year's meeting and asking if you have any suggestions for next year's meeting at North Bend State Park.
Sam Muncy was asked by several people in the Astrology class for his instructions to build MICAN. He has provided the instructions in pdf format. If you have any questions, please contact Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org
WVDNR WANTS YOUR INPUT
The 2015 West VIrginia State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) is a response to Congress's challenge for all states to provide a comprehensive wildlife conservation strategy, but more importantly, it is a road map for the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR), and its many partners and collaborators, to proactively conserve the full array of West Virginia's biological diversity.
To view the Draft State Wildlife Action Plan:
The plan is currently in the "Other" category (bottom left column). It will eventually go under the link to the Wildlife Diversity section under the State Wildlife Action Plan tab.
To submit comments on the State Wildlife Action Plan email:
The draft is long, but very important to us as Master Naturalists. This plan identifies over 600 animal and 400 plant "Species of Greatest Conservation Need" (SCGN) in the state that, as the names implies, need a little more help from us all, if we are to avoid their disappearance from the landscape. Public comment period runs from June 15 until July 15.
Be sure to visit Events & Volunteer Opportunities for upcoming state events.
There are eight currently active Master Naturalist Chapters located around the state and more can be expected to be added as interest develops.
