Master Naturalists give advice on planting Texas tough species in the Dallas Morning News
Texas Wildlife Association recognizes two Indian Trail Master Naturalists as TWA Volunteers Of the Year
TWA’s L.A.N.D.S. Specialist Leslie Wittenburg and Koy Coffer describe their contributions:
“Paul and Charlie have been Conservation Education volunteers in the DFW area. They have rearranged their personal schedules to always be available when needed. Many times this past year, volunteering 2 or 3 days a week, they have attended almost every field investigation day held in the DFW area, many times bringing other volunteers with them. They have presented at trainings/workshops growing each day as outdoor educators. Paul and Charlie are always finding new ways to make real world connections for students with the material they are presenting. And without fail, Paul & Charlie always are the last volunteers to leave, helping clean up and load up trailers.
They are also Master Naturalists who are always recruiting new volunteers from the Master Naturalist groups around the DFW area. They have spoken at different events, written letters, touting TWA’s youth education programs. The volunteer base has doubled in the DFW area because of Paul & Charlie’s efforts, and continues to grow. Paul & Charlie are invaluable to TWA and the L.A.N.D.S. Program. We are honored and grateful for their outstanding efforts. Please help me recognize our first TWA 2014 Adult Volunteers of the Year – Paul and Charlie Grindstaff.”
