Florida Master Naturalist Graduates!

Today was our last day of Florida Master Naturalist Program-my students presented their final projects, and I'm excited to say there are 14 new graduates of the FMNP Coastal Module! In addition, we had two students (Derek and Helen Day) finish their final module, making them official "Florida Master Naturalists." Including this class I've had a total of 40 students take a class from me in 2010. Congrats to everyone!!
I know I say this about all my classes, but they really were an outstanding group. I personally learned a lot from them, and courses like these are an ideal way to learn about peoples' different perspectives about various environmental issues. As an extension agent, I find this invaluable. I wish the class the best of luck with their future environmental education endeavors. Enjoy the pictures!!
