 A round-up for all prospective trainees for the Texas Master Naturalist, Sabine-Neches Chapter, serving Orange, Hardin and Jefferson counties will be held at 6:30 p.m. July 25 at the Big Thicket Association Office, 700 North St., Beaumont.

The mission of the Texas Master Naturalist program is “to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.”

Master Naturalist volunteers receive in-depth training in wildlife and natural resource management focused on local ecosystems and provide service in the form of community education, conservation and demonstration projects. Recent volunteer projects include removing the Gambusia Trail decking at Sea Rim State Park, assisting with the Michael Hoke Outdoor Day in Orange, repairing the damage at Village Creek State Park caused by Hurricane Harvey and planting longleaf pines at the Big Thicket.
