Adults with an interest in Indiana’s plants, wildlife, forests, and wetlands can enroll in the Indiana Master Naturalist (IMN) course at Pokagon State Park.
“We are excited to host our first IMN course at Pokagon,” Nicky Ball, an interpretive naturalist, said. “Participants will be able to spend time in the beautiful fall setting of the park while learning from a diverse group of talented instructors.”
Sessions begin Sept. 25 and will continue to Nov. 10. Participants will attend nine total sessions on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 9:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to noon. All sessions will be held at the Pokagon Nature Center.
Class size is limited to 30 participants and space is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. A fee of $120 will be charged to cover supplies and expenses. For more information, contact the park office at 260-833-2012.
