Thank you for your interest in becoming a Texas Master Naturalist. The program has three components: new member training, volunteer service, and advanced training. New member training is offered each fall and is accomplished by attending forty hours of class taught by various experts in such fields as ornithology, herpetology, habitats, ecoregions, and many others. Volunteer service hours are obtained through chapter projects in the community. Numerous advanced training opportunities for members occur throughout the year for year-long learning.
To become a member in the Brazos Valley Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist, you must enroll in and complete our New Member Training course.
