Brazoria County Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists is seeking men and women interested in becoming a Texas Master Naturalist.

Kristine Rivers, a 2016 intern, wrote,”I was excited to be able to expand upon my lifelong interest in nature and wildlife by learning more about the wonderful natural resources within Brazoria County and Texas. In addition to increasing my knowledge about subjects such as ecology, botany, ornithology, entomology, mammalogy and more, I learned about all of the opportunities to volunteer and be of service. I have really enjoyed providing education and outreach to my community, as well as participating in conservation activities in the area that I grew up in, to ensure that it will still be here for future generations to enjoy as well. Finally, I have made so many friends through the program, who share common interests with me, and we have a great time together. I highly recommend the program to anyone that is considering taking it.”

Judy Green, another 2016 intern wrote, “I wanted the opportunity to be an active member in a variety of activities that would engage both my body and my mind. Texas Master Naturalists offered all that and the chance to learn and grow at my own pace. I learned from highly educated men and women in various fields: Archaeology, Geology, Entomology, Ichthyology, Botany and more.  It opened my eyes to TMN’s partner organizations and their volunteer needs.”

No prior knowledge is needed. All that is needed is an interest to learn and a desire to be a part of an organization that helps make a difference!

The next intern class for the Brazoria County chapter begins January 18, 2017 at Texas AgriLife building in Angleton.
