Certification, a process that has been pioneered in several states, is
designed for naturalists and educators working at non-formal nature and
environmental education facilities at parks, arboreta, private preserves,
and more. It gives educators in this arena access to a formal credential
that standardizes and upgrades professional training, allowing educators to
become better trained and perhaps even more marketable.
