Logging Education & Volunteer Hours
Education and volunteer hours may be logged into the database by clicking the "Login" tab at the top of this page. The feature is only available to current and past Tennessee Naturalist students, and requires an account name and password. You will receive these login credentials once you are registered for your Tennessee Naturalist course. Training on how to navigate the student portion of the database is provided through our online training manual listed on the database Home page under Student Resources.
Once you have entered hours into the database, your local chapter coordinator will be notified and will review and approve your work. To receive certification, students must attend 40 hours of core classes and log 40 hours of volunteer service. Class attendance is recorded by the chapter coordinator. To receive award pins for advanced levels, students must continue to log volunteer and continuing education hours. In order to facilitate prompt approval of your hours, be sure to provide compete and accurate information when filling in the online forms.
If you have questions about logging education and volunteer hours, please consult the training manual, contact your local chapter coordinator, or visit our Contact Page for further assistance.
