dc.description.abstractI designed and conducted a survey of New York Master Naturalist program participants to assess participant characteristics and three program outcomes: enjoyment, sense of community, and resilience. Survey results will help the Program Director shape program offerings for participants in future years and understand the impact of the pandemic on participants’ program experiences. Respondents’ mean enjoyment, sense of community, and resilience were compared between participants and non-participants in individual program elements using t-tests. The same comparisons were made between participants who were active and inactive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Results show that program elements with in- person components were related to higher enjoyment, and that program elements involving face- to-face interaction with other participants were related to a higher sense of community. All program elements were related to a higher resilience score. Whether a respondent was active during the pandemic influenced which program elements related to higher enjoyment, community, and resilience scores.
