****Next class will begin August 20, 2019*****


Training Overview:

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 succeeding 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 training classes are usually one day a week for ten 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.  The TMN Fall 2019 Schedule will be posted here once it is finalized.  Click here to see the TMN FALL 2018 Schedule to get an idea of the topics covered during the training.
