BECOME A MASTER NATURALIST: The North Texas Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist program will be accepting applications for its 2020 class beginning on October 1. Master Naturalist Trainees receive in-depth education in wildlife and natural resource management, customized to focus on our local ecosystems. In return, Master Naturalists provide volunteer service in the form of community education, conservation, citizen science, and demonstration projects, while pursuing advanced training in areas of their special interests. The initial training includes 40 hours of classroom sessions plus field trips to learn about Texas’ natural resources.
Training begins February 4, 2020 and continues each Tuesday from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. through April 28, 2020. Most classes will meet at Brookhaven Community College, 3939 Valley View Lane, Dallas, 75244. An Open House will be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 17360 Coit Rd, Dallas, TX 75252.
