Become A Master Naturalist!

 

Texas Master Naturalists not only get their feet wet and their hands dirty, but while doing so they spend time in a natural setting, learn about different plant and animal species, and maybe even find something new!

 

Want to join the South Texas Master Naturalist Chapter?

The answer is YES!  South Texas Master Naturalist Training is fun and diverse!  You will learn about our unique ecology and enhance your love of nature.   All Master Naturalist interns will receive in-depth training in wildlife and natural resource management taught by recognized experts in the field and customized to focus on the native ecosystems in our area.
