Speaker: Merry Bateman
Program: One of our own, Merry has gone to Washington to take the "Climate Change" training offered through Al Gore's Climate Reality Project. She is trained to help breakthrough to any naysayers. She will even address the effects climate change is bringing to Hays County, a subject not addressed in detail before by HCMN.
To gain the designation of a Texas Master Naturalist, you must participate in an approved chapter training program with a minimum of 40 hours of combined field and classroom instruction, obtain 8 contact hours of approved advanced training, and complete 40 hours of volunteer service. Upon starting the initial training program, you have a maximum of fifteen months in which to complete your 40 hours of volunteer service and 8 hours of advanced training. To retain the Texas Master Naturalist title during each subsequent year, volunteers must complete 8 additional hours of advanced training and provide an additional 40 hours of volunteer service.
