Are you interested in learning more about nature? The mission of Kane County Certified Naturalist (KCCN) is to build a community of well-informed citizens who apply their ecological knowledge and sills to habitat restoration, environmental education, and community service. The program is an in-depth environmental education program for adults, combining both classroom (virtual) and field experiences in Kane County’s natural areas.
NEW this year, we have two options to take these classes.
Option #1: Virtual classes and in-person field trips: $300 (includes six core classes, reference materials, four field trips and 10 months of “Learn from the Experts” classes.)
Option #2: Virtual classes only: $150 (includes six core classes only and no field trips; this option will not include official KCCN certification.)
Virtual classes meet on Wednesdays, from 6-8:30 p.m. via Zoom.
Class dates are: Jan. 6, Jan. 13, Jan. 20, Jan. 27, Feb. 3 & Feb. 10.
The four field trips will be from April – June. Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on December 28, 2020.
