Native Plant Master® Trainer/Mentee Application

We are looking for volunteers who would like to become Native Plant Master Trainers (teachers) themselves. Teaching a Native Plant Master (NPM) course or special class is one of the best ways to cement your knowledge.

If you would like to apply as a trainer in this program, please fill out the trainer application and mail it to the county you’re interested in teaching for. See the list below for addresses. Trainers are selected based on their educational background, teaching experience and course/class record with the Native Plant Master Program.

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
