Welcome to the Bluestem Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist program. The mission of the program is 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 for the State of Texas. Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts. In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.
Bluestem Chapter volunteers serve the communities within Grayson County by providing programs addressing environmental issues; assisting Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge with Refuge Rocks programs for children, trail maintenance and school-based field trips. Volunteers also partner with Eisenhower State Park to promote environmental education by offering bird watches and kayak tours to the public and work with the AgriLife Extension office on Youth Conservation Day. Other projects are always ongoing in Grayson County, including prairie restoration.
