Master Naturalist Graduates
What's a Naturalist anyway? What about Master Naturalists? A naturalist is a person who studies both the things and processes that occur in the environment. As a graduate, I can tell you that the Master Naturalist Program is about that ... and FUN!
What Graduates Are Saying
Thanks for everything. I’ve really enjoyed this process. - Jacob Tanenbaum, Master Naturalist
I’m really grateful that I committed to this. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about Long Island and hope to continue learning more as I go. Thank you! - Linda Lombardo, Master Naturalist
Participating in the Master Naturalist program and these subsequent research assignments has been a great assistance in helping me to connect with other naturalists living in New York City! - Carey Russell, Master Naturalist
Favorite, memorable days in my life include field trip naturalist training activities with Quality Parks. - Lori Blakeney, Master Naturalist
- The best part of this program was the personal learning approach each Instructor conveyed. The hike and events were fun, with each person contributing, which added to my learning and skills. I enjoyed every part of the program and look forward to more. - Peter Wimett, Jr., Master Naturalist
The course work is vigorous and thorough because we want to get people involved in a wide variety of projects and issues. A lot of people want to DO something to help save what’s left of the nature on Long Island but they don’t know how to get involved. This course answers that need. - Eric Powers, CEEDLI
- It gets people outdoors to experience and learn about our beautiful environment, so they will want to protect it. - Jane Fasullo, Long Island Sierra Club
- Today was the tenth anniversary and tenth release of quail at Caleb Smith State Park. Although I live less than 5 or 6 miles from the park, this was the first time I knew about the program. Congratulations Quality Parks Master Naturalist Program, you have made me a believer! - Chris Duffner, President Friends of Caleb Smith State Park
