If you're interested in the Texas Master Naturalist program, the Rolling Plains chapter Spring training is coming soon. Classes begin on March 22, but the registation deadline is March 14 so the curriculum can be ordered to be here the first night.
We often have people take the class just to learn more about our area's natural history, even though they do not plan to become a certified Texas Master Naturalists. This is especially true for teachers.
The course includes 4 field trips and 14 class sessions. The instructors are primarily MSU professors although some classes are taught by members of the local Texas Master Naturalists or professionals in a given field of expertise.
Registration is $80 ($70 for full-time college students.) The complete schedule and registration information is available from Mark Howell at Inland Fisheries. His phone number is 940-766-2383.
