The Texas Master Naturalist program develops local teams of “master volunteers” to provide educational and outreach services aimed at the better management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners. Some of the areas that we volunteer at are the Heard Nature Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney, Connemara Meadows in Allen, Oakpoint Parks in Plano, Lewisville Lake Learning Area in Lewisville and Blackland Prairie Raptor Center in Lucas.  We are trail guides, educators, stream water testers, native plant gardeners, animal care providers and many other types of  roles.

If you love being outside, enjoy nature and are looking for like-minded people, this is the place for you. Classes for 2016 will start in February and run through May.

Additional details can be found on our Chapter website or the Texas Master Naturalist Website.  If you decide you want to be a part of our next class or want to explore it in more detail, then check out the class agenda and requirements that are located here. Don't delay as the class sizes are limited to the first 40 enrolled and first class starts February 10th. If you want to get a feel for the people in the group, we also will be having our annual open house on Jan 12th so come out and see what we are all about.
