Ontario Master Naturalist Program

The Ontario Master Naturalist Program (OMNP) is a new 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 was an overwhelming success, with 29 students completing the program.
