Nebraska Master Naturalist is a statewide volunteer conservation program.  Our program recruits, trains, manages, and provides resources for our volunteer naturalist members.

We use four strategies to meet Nebraska’s conservation needs, Habit Stewardship, Community Science, Environmental Education & Interpretation, and Outdoor Recreation & Skills. 

This free webinar series will host a variety of presenters and subject matter within these four conservation strategies. Master Naturalist Mondays is a space to connect us to our conservation motivations and inspirations, and our naturalist community across the state of Nebraska.

Remembering Our Nature: Rebuilding Connections to Heal the Land

As naturalists and conservationists, we regularly form connections with the land and the creatures who live there. Unfortunately, too many humans have lost those relationships - with dire consequences for our own well-being and that of our planet. How can we, as educators, think about healing these broken connections? In this talk, we will explore what’s possible when we, and those we serve, come home to ourselves in nature. To prepare, please bring a natural item (e.g., leaf, pinecone, feather, houseplant).
