Coastal Prairie Chapter Texas Master Naturalist Classes
Become a Master Naturalist!
****Fall 2018 classes are closed. Next class will begin Fall 2019*****
The Texas Master Naturalist Program is a volunteer training and development program sponsored by Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service, a Texas A&M system, and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Texas Master Naturalists volunteer in their communities, providing natural resource education and participating in community service and outreach projects in support of Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
Texas Master Naturalist training covers a wide variety of topics including botany, ecology, geology, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, soil science, weather & climate, and archaeology. To maintain certification, Texas Master Naturalists must complete 40 hours of volunteer service and 8 hours of advanced training each year. Examples of volunteer service projects, including our signature project the Seabourne Creek Nature Park, are listed under the Volunteer menu tab on the home page.
The classes are usually one day a week for eight consecutive weeks in various locations in Fort Bend and Waller Counties. The class schedule varies.
Classes are typically held on Saturdays and some Tuesday evenings. Click here to see the TMN FALL 2018 Scheduleto get an idea of the topics covered during the training.
