To develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.
Meetings are Open to the Public!
Central Texas Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists holds bi-monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of even numbered months (February, April, June, August, October, and December) at 6:00 p.m. Meetings are usually held at the Belton Church of Christ (3003 N Main) located off FM 317 in north Belton. These meetings increase your knowledge of Central Texas natural resources. As a member, these meetings qualify for one hour of advanced training (AT), but for the public, it’s a free hour on insects, invasive species, wildlife management, birds, fossils, zero waste management, archaeology, etc. So, come and see what we are all about!
The next business meeting of the Central Texas Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists will be on Tuesday evening, May 13, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. at the Belton Church of Christ, Belton, TX; this will be our PACE meeting at which we will likely work on the 2014 Nature Fest. CTMN members (including our new members) are encouraged to attend for volunteer credit!
Are you interested in becoming a certified Texas Master Naturalist?
The Spring 2014 Master Naturalist training class is underway! If you are interested in becoming a Texas Master Naturalist, additional information, to include training schedule, topics, costs, certification details, contact information, and applications are available by clicking here. Our next training class will begin in April 2015, and although we would love to have you in our training, we would hate for you to have to wait until next Spring to get started. if you are eager to get started, there are many other chapters across the state and most of them conduct the certification training using the State Curriculum at some time during the year. So, it might be that you could locate a nearby chapter conducting the training earlier than our next class in Spring 2015. To locate another chapter, please visit the State Texas Master Naturalist website.
The Central Texas Chapter is one of 44 such chapters across Texas which are a source of volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of our local natural resources and natural areas.
See John Sackett’s presentation on Soils to the trainee class from April 8.
