Texas Master Naturalist training covers a wide variety of topics including:

- native Texas plants
- weather & climate
- soil science
In addition to attending classes taught by recognized experts, you will participate in field trips to exceptional natural areas including Attwater Prairie Chicken National Refuge, Sea Center Texas, Quintana Bird Sanctuary and Brazos Bend State Park. You will have the opportunity to enhance your knowledge of local geology, range management and ecological diversity. You will also visit local private reserves to experience different habitats and ecosystems.
The classes will begin the morning of Tuesday, February 18 and are scheduled to complete in mid April. The series includes six classes on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, plus two Tuesday field trips and 6 Saturday field trips. Field trips are held at area parks and preserves in order to provide learning opportunities for new trainees in the field. Day classes are held near the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds, Texas Highway 36 South.
You will attend at least 40 hours of initial training in the Spring 2020 Training Class. If you need to miss a class, please work with the New Class Director to make arrangements for a makeup class. After your initial training is complete, the next step is to become a certified master naturalist. In order to obtain initial certification as a master naturalist, you will join us in our mission by volunteering at least 40 hours of your time toward approved projects and completing 8 hours of advanced training by the end of the year following your training. In order to maintain your certification, members will volunteer 40 hours per year and receive 8 hours of advanced training per year.
