Class & Program Speakers

One of the benefits of the Alamo Area Master Naturalist Course is the opportunity to be taught by the best. We are fortunate in San Antonio to have so many subject experts right here. Not only are these teachers some of the most knowledgeable in their fields, but they are also some of the most passionate. You will find them to be engaging, stimulating and thought-provoking. In working through the classes and subjects, you just may find a new area of science or nature that you want to study and master or maybe even a new vocation. You will definitely come out with a new appreciation of the world around us.
