The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the AgriLIFE Extension Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners.

The Tierra Grande Chapter serves the greater Big Bend Region.  Our Mission:  To develop a corps of well-informed volunteers who provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural area within our community.

April 13, 2019 – Tierra Grande Strategic Planning Meeting, DMSP

Yesterday Tierra Grande held an all day retreat at Indian Lodge. The goal of the retreat was to define our current state of the union and agree on a strategic path forward in order to preserve our region’s natural resources for years to come.

A huge thanks to Volunteerism Committee co-chairs Lisa Fielder and Ellen Weinacht for their hard work organizing the retreat and providing the great food. And to Laurie Johnson, Director of the Nonprofit Management Center Midland for facilitating the entire day. The event was full capacity which is very encouraging as we look to the future. It was productive and great to meet new friends and renew old acquaintances.
