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. Since then, the Ontario Master Naturalist Program has expanded to include participant workshops, and certificate program offerings in Thunder Bay and the Bruce Peninsula.
