Jr Extension Master Naturalists

Summer Classes 2022 

Calling kids in grades 3rd-5th (or thereabouts)! Do you want to be a "Kansas Wild Kid"? If so, sign up for our Jr Extension Master Naturalist Program sessions. Complete one month and become a Nature Explorer. Complete two months and become a Nature Guide. And if you can complete all three summer sessions, you'll be recognized and celebrated as a certified Junior Naturalist! 

At the conclusion of the field experience each month, "Kansas Wild Kids" who have attended each of the two extension classes and the associated field work for that month will get new items to keep for future exploration and discovery! Come join the fun! 

$5/session per youth participant; parents are welcome to stay with their child, but it is not necessary.
