Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist (OCVN) program is now accepting applications

The Wood County Park District Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist (OCVN) program is now accepting applications for the 2015 OCVN course.

Beginning in early April, Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist training will be offered for residents of Wood County and surrounding areas. The OCVN program is a volunteer program which provides an extensive course in the natural sciences in exchange for a donation of volunteer hours to share your skills and knowledge with others through OCVN sponsored activities. The Wood County OCVN program is a cooperative venture between Ohio State University Extension Wood County, and the Wood County Park District.

There is an enrollment fee of $200.00 for Wood County residents and $250.00 for out-of-county residents to cover the cost of training materials, speakers, facilities and a mandatory volunteer criminal background check. Courses are held at various Wood County Park District properties as well as some off-site locations. During field instruction, students will be asked to walk outside on uneven terrain and/or wet areas. Boots and/or sturdy shoes as well as weather-appropriate clothing are recommended for this course.

Visit our website at to print out a brochure, tentative syllabus, application, position description and more.  Applications are due February 15 and are available to pick up at Park District Headquarters, 18729 Mercer Road, Bowling Green, Ohio.
