Ontario Master Naturalist Program

Ontario Master Naturalist Program Logo

The Ontario Master Naturalist Program (OMNP) is a community program established by Lakehead University Orillia in partnership with Ontario Nature. The first of its kind in Canada, the OMNP provides naturalists* and those interested in nature and environmental stewardship the opportunity to receive a Master Naturalist certificate.

The inaugural six-module program took place in the spring of 2015 and following our 2016 program, we have seen had two full classes of participants complete the program and received their Master Naturalist certificates.
