AGRICULTURE & NATURAL RESOURCES

Agriculture Extension agents help ranchers and farmers enhance their production and distribution capacities, while maintaining sound environmental principles. The agent assists them in adapting to new technology and protecting our environment. Through consultations, on-site demonstrations and workshops the agent provides the latest information in five major program areas: Natural Resources, Crop Production, Produce Marketing, Pesticide Use and Education, and Livestock and Range Management.

 

The Northeast Florida Master Naturalist Chapter is a group of graduates of the Florida Master Naturalist Program from Nassau, Duval, Clay, Baker, St. Johns and Flagler counties  working to promote conservation through education in our communities. We are looking for members who want to continue their environmental education activities and outreach with fellow Naturalists. Graduates of one FMNP course module are eligible to become members of the Northeast Florida Master Naturalist Chapter.
