Native Plant Master® Volunteer Application

Gaillardia_aristataJuly2011_141shonle.jpgWe are excited to announce that we are accepting applications so that you too can become a certified Native Plant Master®. You can make a big difference by volunteering to use information you learn in Native Plant Master courses to educate the public about the plants of Colorado. These educational contacts can be made at your current nature-related job or volunteer position.

Gaillardia_aristataJuly2011_141shonle.jpgIn order to become a certified Native Plant Master, you must first be accepted as a volunteer. After passing three Native Plant Master courses and submitting 60 or more educational contacts, you will become a Certified Native Plant Master. There is no time limit on how long it takes to meet the certification requirements. As a Certified Native Plant Master, you are eligible to take any class or course we offer for 30% off the original fee. To remain certified, you must report at least 60 educational contacts per year and take 12 hours of continuing education every other year.

For more information, see the Native Plant Master Program Guidelines. To apply to become a certified Native Plant Master volunteer, please fill out the application form.


Selection is based on demonstrated ability to educate the public through employment or volunteer status with an external natural resource agency. We will let you know in four to six weeks if you are accepted.
