Virtual Registration

The Texas Master Naturalist Program Office is currently monitoring the current COVID-19 potential impacts on this year’s meeting. With lessons learned from the 2020 and 2021 Annual Meeting, we are putting potential plans into place for some form of a hybrid/virtual experience for guests who may not feel comfortable traveling to an in-person event. This may include virtual streaming of select technical sessions or streaming of just the keynote sessions and awards ceremony. More information about the virtual registration options, virtual registration cost, and sessions included will be shared in mid-August as we continue to monitor the potential need for this format of meeting attendance.
