The Master Naturalist program offers education and up close experience with our local environment.  Groups or individuals can tap into the expertise of the Master Naturalists to explore everything from local plants and insects to local wildlife and the night sky over the Big Country.  The organization offers a 12 week training to individuals interested in volunteering.

The Big Country chapter is hoping to add 12 to 20 new members that will help educate our community about the plants, animals and insects unique to this region.  

KACU's Hayden Baggett spoke with Joel Brant, a biology professor at McMurry University and Master Naturalist about their training program which begins at the end of August.

Applications are being accepted until August 1st.

Find out more about their programs and their training on the Big Country Master Naturalist website.
