Your Mission

Help guide the everyday exploration of your community and become a backyard naturalist! You've just been hired as a local naturalist. You'll need to prepare yourself to take groups of tourists on short nature hikes and answer their questions about area wildlife. Because naturalists are expected to know a lot about the local environment, your job requires you to become knowledgeable about local wildlife and learn how to collect and analyze biological data. This will ensure that you can answer all those tourists' questions!
