The Texas Master Naturalist program is designed to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers who provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities for the State of Texas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension serve as sponsors for the program. Trained Master Naturalist volunteers are uniquely qualified to inspire their neighbors to appreciate the natural environment, to participate in hands-on projects are local parks and preserves, and to help children and adults learn about the local natural resources. The possibilities to make a difference are endless!
