All of the presentations at our Annual Meeting were recorded and can still be viewed and counted for AT credit if you registered for the Annual Meeting. You can still log in to the Annual Meeting and view any presentation that you would like to see again or any that you missed being able to watch during the meeting. Even though they are no longer live events, our directors declared that you can still get AT credit for viewing any of them. All sessions, except the Stream Team Riparian Evaluation presentation, will be available for viewing until April 2021.
Beginning in January on the second Tuesday of every month, our directors will be starting TMN Tuesdays. This will be Virtual Advanced Training presented from noon to 1pm. It will be open to all Texas Master Naturalist Members across the state. They will be hosted via WebEx and they will be recorded for viewing at a later time. You are invited to send your ideas on what you would like these presentations to address. Send your ideas to Michelle Haggerty at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Pearl Meuth at email@example.com.

The Covid-19 Restrictions have been eased a little. We may now have in person gatherings for up to 75% of facility capacity but not to exceed 50 people. Masks are still required.
A Guidance Document for Community/Citizen Science Projects is posted on the State TMN Web Page. It is effective from November 2, 2020 thru December 31, 2021. If you are participating in any Community/Citizen Science Projects, you may want to check it out.
A new award pin will be distributed to all TMN Chapters in January. It is called the 2020 Against All Odds Pin and will be available for those with 8 hours of AT and 1 hour of Volunteer Service. Yes, that is correct; one hour of Volunteer Service. Here is a photo of the pin.
