Along the Trail

Work in progress! Until completed you can visit our “old” projects page here.

In 2018, the Indian Trail Master Naturalist chapter of Ellis and Navarro Counties, Texas (ITMN), decided to create a digital history/scrapbook.  “ALONG THE TRAIL” contains ITMN’s historical events.  On these pages you will see ITMN members involved in the many activities that fulfill our mission: “To develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.”

As you walk “ALONG THE TRAIL”, you will see the many wonderful people and projects/activities that this chapter is engaged in.  Each member hopes that the footprints they leave behind contributes to the overall good of nature and becomes not only a part of the chapter’s history, but a part of the larger picture that educates others as to how they can contribute as well.

To walk “ALONG THE TRAIL”, just click on any of the footsteps (project/activity) below to be taken to that project or activity.
