Indiana’s Fort Harrison SP Offers Accelerated Master Naturalist Class


Students of the Indiana Master Naturalist workshop at Fort Harrison State Park this summer will be able to complete their coursework in one week instead of eight.

The workshop is July 16-20, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Sponsored by DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs and Holliday Park, the workshop is designed for teachers and environmental educators who cannot attend a typical eight-week long workshop. The workshop is also open to the general public.

The Indiana Master Naturalist Program is an educational/volunteer program developed by the DNR and Purdue University Extension. Its mission is to teach adult learners about Indiana’s plants, water, soils and wildlife and to promote volunteer service in local communities.

Class size will be limited to 30 students. The fee for the class is $50. Registrations are due by July 1. To register or to learn more about the program, contact Frank Rouse, Holliday Park naturalist, at (317) 327-7180 or [email protected], or visit

The standard park entrance fee will be waived for students.

Fort Harrison State Park is at 5753 Glenn Road, Indianapolis, 46216.
