The third graduating class of the South Carolina Master Naturalist course at FENCE, offered in partnership with Clemson University, was presented with certificates at graduation ceremonies in late July.

The 11 graduates successfully completed a 12-week, outdoor course taught by Clemson faculty and leading nature educators studying the ecology, wildlife, botany, geology and environmental challenges of the southern piedmont and the foothills.

The 11 graduates join other graduates from 2009, bringing the total to 23 master naturalists who have completed the program at FENCE. The next session will begin on Saturday, September 11. For more information visit www.fence.org or call 828-859-9021.
