On March 11th , the new cohort of the Potomac Valley Master Naturalists (PVMN) attended their first day of classes at the National Conservation Training Center. The students started out the day with an introduction of the PVMN Coordinating Committee, their positions and responsibilities. Students then went into “community building” exercises, led by Jeff Feldman, where they were given the opportunity to get to know one another. The day continued with classes on Nature Interpretation taught by Jeff Feldman and Kristin Alexander and Documenting Nature taught by Carolyn Duckworth. The classes that offered are by PVMN are so rich with information and offer something for everyone. Here is wishing the new cohort a wonderful year of learning and community!
