Volunteer service is the reason for our existence.
Chapter members must contribute 40 hours of volunteer service annually to retain certification in the Texas Master Naturalist program.
Our members make a difference in more than 80 chapter-approved volunteer projects across our ten-county service area.
Our chapter’s approved volunteer service projects provide many opportunities for meaningful service. Members are free to volunteer on any approved project in any of our ten counties. Provide service on as many or as few projects as you choose.
If the volunteer activity is not specifically listed by name it is likely not an approved project. Contact us before volunteering to determine if an unlisted project qualifies for reportable hours. VMS projects manager or VMS data manager
Project opportunities are sponsored by various entities: state program sponsors, the chapter, non-profit organizations, nature centers, schools, city, county, state, and federal agencies. Volunteering as a Texas Master Naturalist for private benefit or on privately-owned property is prohibited.
