naturalists nature study

Though close observation of nature is as old as humanity itself, the methodical, codified system of its study that we use today is less than 300 years old. The formal study of nature that was created and adopted by scientists and amateur science enthusiasts, who became known as naturalists, began in England with the Reverend Gilbert White, who was born in 1720. Today the term “naturalist” has several meanings. Teacher/naturalists are community outreach leaders, educators, nature experts, writers, and explorers, all rolled into one. Although some positions require naturalists to hold an advanced degree, there are many opportunities for self-education and advancement through hands-on experience in this fascinating and rewarding career.
