Quality Parks is the 501(c)(3) federally recognized organization that has been benefitting Long Island Natural Areas since 2000.  The Quality Parks Master Naturalist program (see below) is the team of cooperators, coordinators and presenters, working to provide flexible, customized, Long Island-based environmental training.


The Quality Parks Master Naturalist (QPMN) Program is a certification course designed to establish a meaningful level of standardization to the title of “Naturalist” for the citizens of Long Island.  Regional training hubs have been established in order to make this course accessible to all residents of Long Island, and yet the standardized curriculum ensures that everyone will receive the same high quality education.  The course itself is a rigorous combination of classroom study, field-trips, independent inquiry, volunteer assignments, and local guest speakers.  

By certifying a cadre of citizen conservationists, we are instilling future generations with basic ethical standards such as sustainability, environmental literacy, nature education, land stewardship, and community service on behalf of natural areas...all of which is needed to advance the long-range health and vitality of Long Island’s natural heritage.  Upon graduation, a Master Naturalist can experience a more meaningful, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle.


QPMN - East End is being offered at the Southampton Town Community Center in Flanders. From there we will be involving many community organizations and natural areas in Riverhead, the North and South Forks.


The program will run between April-June 2013, two evening sessions and six Saturdays, plus additional flexible opportunities.  Seats are limited,  with early bird registration before March 3.   For more information, course details, and registration  - http://www.qualityparks.org
