town, then being a Citizen Forester is for you!

Where Would We Be Without The Master Naturalists?
Nowhere, that's where; and probably 3-years farther behind than
we already are. Check out the
Master Naturalists newsletter.
Note: The following is an example article from an older Dragonflyer:
Steve Houser, Speaker For Our January Monthly Meeting We will all
get a treat at our January Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, January 3.
2007, as Steve Houser, with Arborilogical Services, who is also a
NTC Master Naturalist, will give a presentation on the Texas Tree
Trails program, a long time approved project/activity for our
Chapter. During his presentation, Steve will show us how to properly
measure a tree.
Texas Tree Trails are planning a training session in
January or February for our new volunteer members who enjoy trees and
would like to help preserve them. They will teach new volunteers how
to properly measure and how to identify common local trees.
They do not have a date yet. Keep your eyes and ears open for an
announcement on the training.
