The Texas Master Naturalist program develops local teams of “master volunteers” to provide educational and outreach services aimed at the better management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.
The Elm Fork chapter proudly serves Denton, Cooke and Wise counties.
The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners.
Important announcement for all Elm Fork Chapter Members
Janet Laminack distributed new AgriLife Covid 19 Guidance for meetings. All face to face meetings are CANCELED at least through December 6.
I would expect that to be extended.
ALL Elm Fork activities for service projects, bird walks, etc are canceled through at least December 6. This includes all outdoor activities. Projects like feeder watch or INat that are done solo at your home will continue.
Unfortunately, next week’s drive thru to receive your award pins will also be canceled. Tentatively, the drive thru will at Global Spheres on December 14 and at the extension office on December 15, if permitted.
Your health and safety along with that of the public is what is most important. We will be receiving weekly updates from AgriLife, which I will pass on to you.
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
Tom is very popular this time of year!
His real name is Meleagris gallopavo silvestris, an Eastern wild turkey.
An Eastern wild turkey is traditionally the recognized Thanksgiving turkey enjoyed by early Puritans, and generations of Americans since.
This sub-species was first described and named by naturalist L.J.P. Vieillot in 1817, using the Latin term silvestris, meaning “forest” turkey.
