“Education, Restoration, Preservation”
The Texas Master Naturalist Program’s mission 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.
Our Commitment to You
The Blackland Prairie Texas Master Naturalist chapter is strengthened by the diversity of our members. We are committed to providing a welcoming environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are a core part of everything that we do. We strive to be an organization that reflects the communities we serve and encourages multiple ideas and viewpoints.
The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners.
Monthly Chapter Meetings

She has been documenting moths and other creatures in her Keller backyard for over six years where she has identified over 300 species of moths. She has a passion for photographing insects and studying their life cycles. An iNaturalist user since 2015, Kimberlie has made over 29,000 observations, and you can find her there at @kimberlietx.
Kimberlie will be presenting about Backyard Mothing where she will share with us about the importance of moths, examples of common DFW moths, and how to look for them in your own backyard. Join us to learn more about these fantastic night-flying insects just in time for National Moth Week, July 17-25, 2021.
