The UF/ IFAS St. Lucie and Martin County Extension Offices are pleased to announce the upcoming Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP) Coastal Shoreline Restoration course. This FMNP course is a 24-hour educational program designed to provide training in the restoration of living shorelines, oyster reefs, mangroves, and marshes, with a focus on ecology, benefits, methods, and monitoring techniques. People that complete this course will be better prepared to promote and assist with restoration projects. Due to COVID-19 safety requirements, students will not be meeting in-person. Course details are posted online. This course will be conducted 100-percent virtually with self-directed field trips.
Upon completion of the course, participants receive Coastal Shoreline Restoration certification, complete with certificate, patch and pin from the University of Florida. The registration fee includes course materials, hands-on experience, and registration in an online database that can be used for verification purposes such as might be required for obtaining CEUs, in-service credits, or resume checks.
