El Camino Real Chapter graduates new Master Naturalists group
CAMERON—On Sept. 23 the 2012 Training Class of the El Camino Real Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist had their graduation program. Graduates were presented certificates from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Biologist Chris Harper.
The graduates had a surprise nature song for the members to the tune of “With A Little Help From My Friends”. Members and guest enjoyed an afternoon of food, fun and nature sharing.
Trees, amphibians, mammals and climate of Milam County were some of the subjects presented to the class. Field trips to Waco Wetlands and S.M. Tracy Herbarium in College Station; and Bryophyte collecting opened areas of interest to the trainees.
To become a Texas Master Naturalist a trainee must complete 40 hours of classroom and field trip time.
