Thank you for your interest in becoming a Texas Master Naturalist! To become a Texas Master Naturalist, trainees must take a basic training course that provides a background in all aspects of the natural history of Texas, with a concentration on the local area. The Brazos Valley Chapter provides training in the fall of each year. Following the basic training, members continue with advanced training and volunteer service, for which the chapter provides ample opportunities.
Are you interested in being a part of our
New Members Class of 2023?
❧ New member training classes will begin this fall — August 29th through November 14th!
❧ Classes will be on Tuesday evenings at 6-9pm at the BRTC, plus 5 Saturday field trips (generally meeting at 8am, lasting 2-3 hours).
❧ Locations will vary but all will be in Brazos County.
(While we are still working out the details of this year’s class schedule, you can “grab a sneak peek” on what topics will be covered during training by taking a look at last year’s training schedule above)
Tuition is $165 per person ($295 for couples sharing a textbook) and can be paid online:
The tuition for an individual covers one Texas Master Naturalists textbook, thumb drive with information, maps, and handouts; one TMN BV name tag, and speaker fees.
If you do not submit your application or if your application is not accepted, we will refund 100% of your tuition.
