Volunteer Naturalists Orientation at Bernheim Forest


Are you a nature lover that is looking for a way to give back this year? If so, then Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest has just the opportunity for you! Join Bernheim for its Volunteer Naturalists Orientation from 1 – 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 24th.

While Bernheim’s general Volunteer Orientation takes place quarterly, this is the only opportunity nature lovers will have this year to participate in the Volunteer Naturalists Orientation. Naturalists are considered Bernheim’s “nature ambassadors” and share their love and knowledge for nature with visitors.

Bernheim Interpretive Programs Manager, Wren Smith, will introduce participants to Bernheim’s award-winning Volunteer Naturalist Training program and share how even the most novice of nature lovers can be great naturalists.

“The Volunteer Naturalist Program is an effort to nurture each person’s love of nature, while helping provide them with the tools necessary to share their knowledge, wonder and passion for nature with those who visit Bernheim,” said Smith. “The program is intensive, yet flexible enough to fit many schedules.”

In addition to the Volunteer Naturalists, Bernheim offers a whole host of other volunteer opportunities.  The quarterly general Volunteer Orientation is also on Saturday, January 24 from 10 am – Noon.

Location: Bernheim Forest,  2499 Clermont Road, Clermont, KY 40110

Info: If you are interested in learning more about either the general orientation or the Volunteer Naturalist Program, contact Volunteer Coordinator, Amy Landon, at 502-955-8512 or email her at

Community Conversation



What is a Community Conversation?

A “community conversation” is a way to bring a diverse set of community

members together to collectively brainstorm strategies and resources

that can be used to address a challenge facing the community. In

short, it provides a fun and creative way to find local solutions and new

partners to address issues that matter most in a community.

We invite you to an evening of conversation about how our community can

facilitate peer interaction, inclusive activities and opportunities

for friendships between students with and without disabilities. Join us as we

explore ways to increase meaningful participation for ALL


Please RSVP to

Location: Central Hardin High School (Commons Area), 3040 Leitchfield Road, Cecilia, KY
