The Indian Trail Chapter, serving Ellis and Navarro Counties was the 41st Master Naturalist Chapter in Texas to be established.
In November 2010, 23 members completed the first training program. The trainees were full of enthusiasm and fervor for nature. The members couldn’t wait to get out there, to share their excitement and to positively impact our environment.
We started by writing weekly articles for the local newspaper and by offering a free monthly program for the public on such diverse topics as Wildlife Tax Exemptions, Urban Wildscapes, Wildflowers, Invasive Plants and the Loss of Pollinators. Each and every program has been incredibly informative but we were mostly just sitting through them. We needed to get up and out there in nature, to get our hands dirty and we found plenty of opportunities to do just that.
