NATA has awarded 10 workshop participants with Certificate in Natural Areas Management so far in 2019

10 people have already earned their Certificate in Natural Areas Management (CNAM) in 2019! While a few of these participants have been able to accomplish this in just a year, the majority have taken multiple years to earn their certificates—one person having taken 5 years to do so! Participants represent a variety of agencies, including the St. Johns River Water Management District, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the City of Palm Bay, and the counties of Sarasota, Manatee, and Orange.

Vincent Taliaferro earns his CNAM at the 2019 Managing Visitors and Volunteers workshop at Gold Head Branch State Park.
