Texas Master Naturalist – Panhandle Chapter
The 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 for the State of Texas.
The Need: Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts. In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.
The Panhandle Chapter encompasses 26 counties of the Texas panhandle and includes a diverse assortment of locations of interest. Three of the largest are Palo Duro Canyon and Caprock Canyons State Parks as well as the Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument. Chapter meetings typically take place on the last Monday of the month at 7:00pm at the Southwest Branch of the Amarillo Public Library. Locations and dates do vary a few times throughout the year, so please check our Facebook page for updated meeting information.
