Who are we?

The New River Valley Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalists is part of the Virginia Master Naturalist Program, a state-wide corps of community-based volunteers who work to care for Virginia's natural resources and public lands. After basic training in natural resource topics, we volunteer as educators, citizen scientists, and stewards helping Virginia conserve and manage its natural resources.

On these pages you will find events and volunteer opportunities in which we participate as Virginia Master Naturalists. However, these events and opportunities are open to all people in the New River Valley of Virginia and nearby regions.

Virginia Master Naturalist programs and employment are open to all, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status. An equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
