The Prairie Oaks Master Naturalist Chapter is a collegiate chapter of Texas Master Naturalists. Members include both community members and students from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas.
Prairie Oaks Master Naturalists are well-informed volunteers who provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas in the counties of Palo Pinto, Erath, Hamilton and Comanche. Within these counties are Rolling Plains, Oak Woods, Prairies, Blackland Prairie, and the Edwards Plateau ecoregions.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Tarleton State University serve as sponsors for the program.
Our monthly meetings are on the third Thursday of the month at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research & Extension Center, 1229 N. US Hwy 281, in Stephenville. Meetings are open to the public. A business portion begins at 6 pm followed by an hour-long presentation by a guest speaker. Check our calendar for information on speakers and upcoming events!
