WORKSHOPS

MNA sponsors several free or low-cost professional development opportunities at venues around the Minneapolis and St.Paul Metro Area. Workshops are focused on content and practice for both naturalist staff and volunteers on topics including natural/cultural history, citizen science, recreation, and outdoor skills. Workshops are held three times during the year.

In order to provide the best experience possible for both participants and host sites, pre-registration is required for all workshops. Online registration will close prior to the workshop and a confirmation email will be sent to you. We apologize for the inconvenience but we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins or requests made after the registration deadline has passed. If you have any questions regarding upcoming workshops or registration please email the MNA Professional Development Workshop Coordinator.

    Reptiles and Amphibians of Minnesota


    Minnesota is home to more than 50 species of amphibians and reptiles. During this four-hour workshop, you will learn more about those native species; learn tips and tricks for handling and teaching about them; learn survey techniques; and hear more about their captive care and veterinary needs. If your center houses natives, you won't want to miss this exciting educational experience. Presented by the Minnesota Herpetological Society.
