  1. Dolly, I would love to be able to join in this class, but don't see the registration information on the Master Naturalist website for these dates!

  2. It takes a few days to process the posting on the Master Naturalist site. Check back in a couple days. I posted the schedule here on this blog at the same time I submitted it to but it doesn't get automatically uploaded.
