We are a group of trained volunteers who share our appreciation and knowledge of nature with the community through outreach, education and conservation/restoration projects.
Our chapter programs are open to the public and are usually held from January to November on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30pm for the social and 7:00pm-8:00pm for the program at the Rosenberg Civic Center ( Map to Rosenberg Civic Center ). Come join us! At our next program we will hear from Kelly Norrid, TPWD Wildlife Biologist, who will present a program on Texas Horned Lizards, Bobwhite Quail and Louisiana Black Bear on the coastal prairie and how we can work to conserve these species and protect their habitat. The meeting is on April 6 at the Rosenberg Civic Center.
