No matter how old you are, you can probably name your favorite teacher in an instant! For many adults who grew up in North Texas, that teacher would be Sally Evans. As a long-time educator at the Richardson and Plano outdoor learning centers and a natural science teacher at the Heard Museum since 1970 Sally has inspired countless young minds to learn about and love the natural world. Wouldn’t it be great to know some of her teaching secrets? Now you can! Evans will be the featured speaker at the next Texas Master Naturalist Blackland Prairie Chapter Naturalist Talk. Her presentation, entitled “Tales and Tips from 50 Years of Teaching about Nature,” will provide some great advice for teaching others about the natural world, shared in her uniquely entertaining and enchanting way.
The presentation will be on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at the Heard Natural Science Museum, 1 Nature Place, McKinney TX 75069, in the Science Resource Center building. A brief Chapter meeting will begin at 7:00 PM, followed by the Naturalist Talk. This is a free event and non-members are invited to attend. For directions to the Heard Museum visit www.bptmn.org.

The Blackland Prairie Chapter is one of 48 recognized Texas Master Naturalist chapters throughout the State. Our chapter meets in McKinney Texas on the second Tuesday of each month and draws members from communities in Collin, Hunt, and Rockwall counties and adjacent areas. The goal of the Texas Master Naturalist program is to provide an opportunity for concerned adult citizens of all ages to learn about the natural environment and use this knowledge to provide volunteer service in the form of community education, conservation, restoration, and demonstration projects. The Texas Master Naturalist program began in 1998 as a joint effort between Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Services.
