Master Naturalist Training
15 week course on Mondays - Jan to May
Location TBD - May be online?
The Gideon Lincecum Chapter is offering training for new Master Naturalists based on the Texas Master Naturalist textbook and curriculum. It is a 15 week course that meets once a week. The class includes lectures on Monday afternoons and field trips on certain Saturdays. The tentative class schedule for 2021 will be from January 25 to May 10. It is very likely some of the training sessions will be conducted online; students will need access to computers with internet connections.
Topics range from climatology to herpetology to botany and ornithology as examples. Participants will also learn about soils, pollinators and insects, mammals, archeology, land stewardship, aquatic systems and so much more. If you want to learn Citizen Science or how to identify that grass or butterfly in your backyard, this is the course for you.
The Gideon Lincecum Chapter covers 5 counties: Austin, Colorado, Fayette, Lee and Washington and have a wide variety of projects and activities in which to become involved once training is complete. The state requires a minimum of 40 documented hours of training to become a volunteer in the Master Naturalist programs. The Chapter’s course schedule offers more than enough hours to meet that requirement.
