If in doubt about which project code to use to report hours, please read the project descriptions and/or check this chart to find the most appropriate project code.
If the volunteer activity is not specifically listed by name it is most likely not an approved project. Please do not arbitrarily enter hours for an unapproved project under another code.

Our chapter’s approved volunteer projects list provides many opportunities for meaningful service. Each member should find appealing projects where they can “make a difference”. 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.
“Approved” volunteer projects have been reviewed by the Director of Volunteer Service Projects. Approved projects meet the mission and standards established by the Texas Master Naturalist state program. Volunteer service project opportunities can be presented by various entities ranging from the state program sponsors, the chapter, local chapter partners, an individual volunteer, nature centers, schools, city, county, state, and federal agencies. The majority of projects are activities of organizations, individuals, or locations, and are submitted for review by a chapter member who is willing to be the contact for the project.
- Each approved project has a chapter coordinator. Contact the project coordinator for information.
- Each approved project has a chapter project ID code. Use the code to report volunteer service hours online with VMS each month, including travel time in your hours.
Chapter project codes are used only by the Hill Country Chapter.
