Our website is dedicated to keeping members and interested members of the public up-to-date on opportunities for learning and volunteer service in our area. The strength of our program is in its nature as a mutually-supportive community of highly-motivated and independent individuals. This site hopes to empower that community by promoting communications about what the members have been doing and what they can be doing to serve Central Texas.
CAMN volunteers continue to make a difference in the stewardship of natural resources across our area. We are proud of all the great projects that are happening and want to share them with you. Take the time to share our pride in your hard work, the learning that occurs and the sharing of your knowledge with others. The evidence of this great effort can be seen in our Hill Country surroundings, our streams and rivers, our thickets and woods, prairies and parks, and finally our schools.

CAMN Meeting—March 26th, 2013
Monarchs have been all over the news lately and for this month’s meeting we get to meet one of the monarch enthusiasts who has been featured in many of these stories. Dr. H.Craig Wilson runs A&M/USDA’s Future Scientist Student Outreach program which teaches teachers throughout the USA (& beyond) hands on teaching techniques and the joys of observation. His passion for milkweed and monarchs has caught the attention of many and it’s not unusual for him to appear at a friend’s house with a freshly dug up milkweed from a site that was about to be developed.
Learn about the monarchs’ fascinating journey and what you can do to help their plight.
Our next monthly meeting will be on April 30th, from 6:30-9pm at the Austin Nature and Science Center.
