Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Become a Certified California Naturalist immersed in the natural history and unparalleled beauty of the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The California Naturalist Program at Point Reyes is a Saturday field-based lecture series provided in partnership between the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Point Reyes National Seashore Association. The mission of the program is to foster a diverse community of naturalists and promote stewardship of California’s natural resources through education and service.

Over the course of five separate Saturdays from Sept 30th – Oct 28th, students will experience Point Reyes National Seashore in ways the casual visitor cannot, working in areas less traveled alongside some of California’s most knowledgeable naturalists. Experience the richness and biodiversity that Point Reyes has to offer.

Graduates of this program will be ready to take an active role in natural resource conservation, education, and restoration. Upon completion, graduates will receive an official California Naturalist Certification and are eligible for 4 credit units from UC Davis Extension.
