The Blackland Prairie Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist program, based in McKinney, is seeking applicants interested in becoming Texas Master Naturalists. Applications will be accepted until Feb. 6, 2019. Classes will be held at the Heard Natural Science Museum, 1 Nature Place, McKinney, TX 75069, from Feb. 13—May 8, 2018. Class participants must complete 40 hours of natural resource training, participate in 3 class field trips, and finish 8 hours of advanced training and 40 hours of volunteer service within their first year in the program. Application forms and program information are available at https://txmn.org/bptmn/class-of-2019/.
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.
