Master Naturalist Training Forms

These forms are required by the State Office for every participant who enrolls in a Master Naturalist training course, through our various Host Sites located throughout the state. The forms are provided to each volunteer by the Host Site on first day of training, unless otherwise stated by the Host Site.


    • General Release and Liability This form is required of all participants. You may additionally be asked to sign a waiver specific to the Host Site.

    • Safety (ICE) Form If you don't already have an "In Case of Emergency" form stored in your cell phone, please feel free to use this one. It is for your use only, not to be shared with anyone except emergency personnel and should be kept on your person in case of an emergency.
