The Texas Master Naturalist program develops local teams of “master volunteers” to provide educational and outreach services aimed at the better management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners. We meet in the Science Resource Center at the end of the road – NOT the main museum building and parking lot which you’ll pass on the right. There may be occasional exceptions to the meeting place – check this calendar for details.

AT Approved (State requirement – 1 hour max)
