Texas Master Naturalists are people who still like to play in the dirt and are willing to get their feet wet and their hands dirty. To become a Master Naturalist, one takes a training class of over 40 hours of expert training about almost every aspect of the natural world – soils, backyard habitats, prairies, rangeland management, forest ecology, birds, mammals, fish, insects, botany, climate, geology and archaeology.
To complete the certification process, each volunteer completes 40 hours of service and an additional 8 hours of training. To maintain their certification each year, volunteers are encouraged to take their knowledge and volunteer for 40 hours and take 8 hours of additional training.
Even with COVID-19 there are still opportunities for volunteer service. Because of the COVID-19 restrictions, there are many opportunities for virtual Advanced Training.
The Texas Master Naturalist Program is sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife. Click here for the Good Water Website for more information about the Good Water Chapter: http://txmn.org/goodwater
