Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge held it's annual Junior Master Naturalist Class the week of July 22 through 26, 2013. Twelve students (ages 9-12) attended the course which featured interactive learning activities about birds, mammals, invasive species, reptiles and amphibians, geology, wetlands, national wildlife refuges, and other conservation topics. Visitor Services Intern Whitnack led the training and was assisted by refuge staff and volunteers, as well as guest presenters from various agencies.

The Junior Master Naturalist Course follows the State of Indiana curriculum of a minimum of 16 hours of instruction and six hours of volunteer service required for students to receive a Junior Master Naturalist patch and certificate. One youngster enjoyed the course so much last year that he took it again this year.
