The Blackland Prairie Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists is one of 46 chapters statewide operating under the sponsorships of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and AgriLife Extension Service. Our members, primarily from Collin and far southeast Denton County, are trained and certified volunteers committed to providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and areas within our communities. Our intent is to raise our volunteers’ level of understanding of the natural world so that they will become stewards and promote stewardship in others.
In 2006 Game Warden LeRoy Thompson, Jr. approached the growing number of people from Collin County and far north Dallas County who were attending North Texas Chapter meetings with the proposition that he would sponsor and be an advisor if they were interested in less commute and more service opportunities close to home. The chapter has blossomed from a handful of volunteers to about 140 members in good standing.
Our monthly Chapter meetings are open to the public. Come see what we are about! Times, Topics and Location listed on our Homepage.
