The Blackland Prairie Chapter draws members from communities located in Collin, Hunt and Rockwall counties and adjacent areas. Communities in these areas are growing fast, but so are opportunities to conserve local natural resources. Master Naturalist volunteers are uniquely qualified to inspire their neighbors to appreciate the environment, to take part in hands-on projects at parks and preserves, to help children and adults learn about local natural resources, and much more.
