These videos support the learning objectives for the Virginia Master Naturalist program's basic training course for new volunteers. They are focused on the "Urban and Developed Systems Ecology and Management" curriculum topic. VMN chapters may choose to use them as part of their course, or they may encourage volunteers to watch them as supplementary material. Watching these videos independently cannot replace enrollment and participation in an in-person VMN training course, but some chapters may choose to offer the videos to enrolled trainees as an option for making up missed classes.
