The East Texas Chapter Master Naturalist is one of 42 Texas Master Naturalist chapters throughout the state. The Texas Master Naturalist program is sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLIFE Extension and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and is designed to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers who provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities for the State of Texhttp://txmn.org/etwd/files/2010/04/1_map.gifas. The East Texas Chapter serves the ten county area including Smith, Cherokee, Anderson, Henderson, Van Zandt, Rains, Wood, Upshur, Gregg, and Rusk counties. For more info contact Brenda McWilliams, 903-530-0620, txmn.org/etwd/ or information.etcmn@gmail.com


The chapter meets on the fourth Thursday of the month:
— the Tyler Nature Center located at 11942 FM 848, Tyler, Texas. The meeting begins at 6:45pm with a presentation by that month’s guest speaker. Of course what would a meeting be without refreshments, so this occurs after our Speaker has finished and before we begin the business side of the chapter meeting. We invite you to come hear some great information from some of the best people in the nature business and enjoy the eats too! Plus, at our meeting you can get 1 hour of Advance Training.
Always check the web site for any changes of meeting times, places, or dates. The December meeting is the annual meeting/Election and Chapter holiday party.
The Chapter also has three Chapter Activity Days (CAD) scheduled (see calendar). Guest Speakers provide three hours of approved advanced training with a chapter class volunteer project conducted after lunch. Please visit the website for additional information as the date gets closer.
