As the Florida Master Naturalist Program celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2021, we are took a look at our program successes. Of course, our graduates are our greatest successes. At last count, we estimated well over 600 students graduated through our program in St. Lucie County. We have been offering a steady stream of courses through the UF/IFAS Extension St Lucie County along with partner agencies such as St. Lucie County’s Environmental Resources Department.
As part of becoming a Florida Master Naturalist, students work on projects and develop some incredibly innovative work. Check out some of the publications, blogs and vlogs created as projects by Florida Master Naturalist Program graduates in St. Lucie County.
