As a chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist Program, we develop well-informed volunteers to educate, outreach, and serve in the beneficial management of natural resources and areas in the lower Rio Grande Valley (RGV).
There are service and training requirements for initial certification and then annual
recertification, with opportunities for both even in this pandemic time.

This training provides an educational foundation about the unique ecology of the lower RGV given by teachers who are local experts highly rated by past trainees. It is also a delightful chance to connect with like-interested folks aged 20s to 80s from a variety of backgrounds. All are welcome!
