City of Coppell: Deadline to Enroll in Junior Master Naturalist Program - Coppell

Sep 7 2018 - 8:00am
Biodiversity Education Center
367 Freeport Pkwy
Coppell , TX

Registration deadline is Sept. 7.

The Biodiversity Education Center is partnering with Texas Master Naturalists to introduce Junior Master Naturalist, a program designed to introduce children in grades 4-6 to the natural world and ecosystems of North Texas. Through exciting hands-on explorations and outdoor adventures, youth participants will gain the skills and knowledge to become a steward of the environment.

The Junior Master Naturalist program includes seven courses that introduce different aspects of the natural environment. Each course consists of one classroom lesson followed by a field trip practicum. Classes take place at the Biodiversity Education Center, where students explore foundational concepts through engaging activities. Each Field trip is hosted at various conservation sites throughout North Texas. These practicums give students the opportunity to apply the concepts they learned in class, develop skills, and experience wildlife first-hand.

Once the participants have completed the program, they will have the opportunity to help train future Junior Master Naturalists by becoming volunteers themselves. One guardian must provide transportation and accompany his or her children during each field trip. To see a schedule of classes and field trips visit our website. Registration is required here. For questions please email us at cnp@coppelltx.gov or call 972-304-3581.
