Frogs, tadpoles, newts. The TN Naturalists @ Ijams found plenty




The ponds were full in early May. They overflowed with life. And our 2016 class of the TN Naturalist @ Ijams learned and searched for amphibians—frogs, toads, salamanders and newts—and they were not hard to find.

2016 was the fourth year that Ijams has been involved in this state-wide program. In addition to the 40 hours of classes, students must put in 40 hours of volunteer work at Ijams or elsewhere. After all the classes and volunteer requirements are met, the students become certified Tennessee Naturalists. 

We are currently enrolling the TN Naturalists @ Ijams class for 2017. It's open to any adult over the age of 18. For information call, Lauren at (865) 577-4717, ext. 135.

Our first 2016 meeting was in March, click: Introduction.
