Twenty Years of Service
Lindheimer Chapter Celebrates its 20th Anniversary!

Lindheimer Chapter began in mid-2000, with the first class graduating in 2001.  In 2020, we will review the past as well as highlight the accomplishments of our current vibrant and active chapter.  Join us in this celebration!

 

Our Mission

To develop a corps of well-trained “Master Volunteers” to provide education, outreach and service dedicated toward the beneficial management of natural areas and resources within their communities for the State of Texas.

One of only 14 identifications of Agroecotettix modestus in iNaturalist, Lindheimer Chapter member MJ McFarland stated her photo was one of two when she uploaded in 2017. It took weeks before she found an expert in iNat, Brandon Woo, to identify it.  Taken at Seminole Canyon State Park.

Since founding, Lindheimer Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist™ have contributed over 165,000 Volunteer Hours to the Texas Hill Country and its inhabitants!  In 2018, chapter members contributed 19,945 volunteer hours to 29 projects, reaching 23,349 citizens of Comal County and the Hill Country!  Members also earned 2,635 advanced training hours to gain ever more knowledge to share with our community.  We are passionately committed to serving as stewards of our natural world, protecting and preserving it for generations to come.


Education – Outreach – Service
