The Louisiana Master Naturalist Association offers an opportunity for citizens to expand or sharpen their skills in natural history, with special focus on the diverse habitats of the Sportsman's Paradise - Louisiana.
With Natchitoches being the state's oldest city (1714) and New Orleans one of the earliest major ports in the U.S. (1718), Louisiana has played a pivotal role in our knowledge of the flora and fauna of North America. Naturalists arrived on many of the earliest ships and sent specimens of species then new to science back to the museums of the Old World. Most of the early natural historians traveled Louisiana's byways, as demonstrated by John James Audubon's many contributions to our knowledge of early 1800s biota.
We encourage you to enter the LMNA certification program and contribute to the well being and expanding knowledge-base in natural history in Louisiana. The Master Naturalist Program, through its various chapters, will enable you to learn about the nature of the state's varied physiographic regions, and help you understand the connections among our valued environment, culture, and economy.
