2012 Virginia Master Naturalist Conference

Four master naturalists from the CRC chapter participated in the 2012 VMN conference in Martinsville.  We had a great time learning about conducting bio blitzes, invasives, macro invertebrates, mushrooms, stream habitat monitoring, and many other topics.  Here are some photos from the Advanced Save-Our-Streams training.
