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.

We are the Lindheimer Chapter, located in Comal County in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  We have crystal clear spring waters and rivers, rolling hills and intriguing canyons, majestic oaks and towering cypress, bright wildflowers, abundant and diverse wildlife – birds, butterflies, bees, fish, insects, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. 

Comal County is home to Canyon Lake,  Guadalupe River,  Guadalupe River State Park and Honey Creek State Natural Area, and the Canyon Lake Gorge – a geological wonder created in just days by a powerful flood which uncovered amazing geological features and 100 million years old dinosaur tracks. Another wonder is the Bracken Bat Cave Preserve, home and nursery to the largest colony of freetail bats in the world with 20 million!

Since founding, Lindheimer Chapter Master Naturalists 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 and earned 2,635 Advanced Training Hours.

We are passionately committed to serving as stewards of our natural world, protecting and preserving it for generations to come.
