Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist
Program Policy Statement Purpose The Ohio
Certified Volunteer Naturalist (OCVN) Program is
a volunteer educational program designed to meet
the natural resource education needs of the
citizens of Ohio. Its purpose is to train
volunteers and utilize their expertise to teach
people more about Ohios natural resources, and
their importance to our quality of life. Ohio
Certified Volunteer Naturalist Program volunteers
provide service to their local natural resource
organizations so that their activities and
programs can be more effectively and efficiently
delivered to Ohio's public. Ohio Certified
Volunteer Naturalist trainees receive formal
training from their local partnership covering a
wide range of pertinent natural resource topics.
To become an OCVN, the trainee must complete the
training program, pass the required exam, and
volunteer the specified number of hours to the
program. The volunteer commitment may be
fulfilled in a number of different ways depending
on the determined needs of the local chapter.
After the completion of the initial required
volunteer time, volunteers are encouraged to
continue to assist with natural resource program
delivery as an OCVN volunteer. The State OCVN
Steering Committee develops policies and
guidelines for the operation of the program and
provides some training and recognition materials,
and other resources for chapters conducting the
program. On the local level, the program is
coordinated by an OCVN coordinator or committee.
12
Volunteer Commitment and Certification
The OCVN state steering committee has established
the following minimum requirement for
certification. However, the local chapters may
opt to exceed these minimum requirements. 40
hours of combined classroom and field
instruction. 40 hours of approved volunteer
service projects. After certification,
recertification requires 20 hours volunteer
service and 8 hours advanced training
annually. Local programs will be organized by
chapter. Local partners will be responsible for
providing leadership to chapter including
volunteer service projects.
