Pay it forward by training FMNers

Are you a member of the Fairfax Master Naturalists chapter? Do you enjoy bringing friends, neighbors, and colleagues into the naturalist fold? Figuring out just the right way to tell a story so that folks follow your lead? It could be your moment to shine.

Pete Mecca has served at the Training Committee Chair for 3 years and will rotate off this summer. Big shoes, yup, and Pete is a great mentor.

Please contact him or Debbie Walch about taking on his role (maybe with a buddy…), working with the training committee, and welcoming incoming new FMNers: vmnfairfax@gmail.com.
