AUSTIN -- Seven chapters of the Texas Master Naturalist program have scheduled summer and fall training classes for volunteers wanting to learn about natural resource and conservation management.

The main qualification needed to become a Certified Texas Master Naturalist is an interest in learning and playing an active part in conservation.

Volunteers will receive a minimum of 40 hours’ training from educators and specialists from places such as universities, natural resource agencies, nature centers, and museums. Training topics include interpretation and management of natural resources, ecological concepts, eco-regions in Texas, and natural systems management. Volunteers are expected to give 40 hours of service a year in community education, demonstration, and habitat-enhancement projects. They are also expected to pursue a minimum of eight hours of advance training in areas of personal interest.

Enrollment is limited in most chapters and some registration deadlines are fast approaching.

Austin: Capital Area Chapter. Training will begin in January and run through mid-April 2013, but registration opens Wednesday, Aug. 1, with a limit of 30 students. For more information, contact Christine Powell at 512-863-8250 or xtinepowell@verizon.net.

San Antonio: Alamo Area Chapter. Training begins Thursday, Sept. 6, and ends Thursday, Nov. 8. Presentations are from 12:30-4:30 p.m. on Thursdays. There are four morning field trips including graduation. Application deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 21.

Training will take place at the Texas AgriLife Building at 3355 Cherry Ridge, Room 208, in San Antonio.
