Goals: promote youth education in Williamson County in all areas
of the master naturalist programs.
Georgetown Recreation Center: Junior Master Naturalist until May
with involvement in spring break and summer programs.
Hutto Recreation Center: Nature programs during spring break and
summer programs with possible expansion of the after-school program
for Junior Master Naturalist.
Our goal is to expose children to our natural world through classroom presentations, field trips, hands-on activities, and just having fun outside. We want to foster appreciation, wonder and the desire to conserve our natural areas.
Over the last 4 years, we have impacted over 2,811 children. We work with children from 3 years of age to 7th grade. This includes homeschool groups, Montessori schools, public schools in Round Rock, Hutto and Taylor, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Hutto parks and Recreation summer camp, Georgetown Recreation Center spring break and summer camp and our Junior Master Naturalist program, and the Texas Memorial Museum programs. We have also participated in Balconies Canyonlands children’s activities, Bat presentations at McNeil Bridge and Congress Avenue, the Pollinator Garden School Tours, and Hutto Lake Park events.
