Welcome to the Elm Fork Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists!

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 Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners.


Nominations are open for Volunteer of the Year, Project of the Year and Certificates of Appreciation. Find the forms here.
