The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and several local agencies. The Cross Timbers chapter proudly serves Tarrant and Parker counties.
The Texas Master Naturalist Program’s mission is to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities for the State of Texas.
Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts. In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.
