Led by the Biodiversity Center's educational staff and North Texas Master Naturalist volunteers, this program combines engaging classroom training with inspiring field-based discovery to help young people develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of Texas' ecosystems. Through hands-on explorations and outdoor adventures, students will gain the knowledge and skills to become a lover of nature and responsible steward of the environment.
The Junior Master Naturalist program includes seven courses that introduce different aspects of the natural environment. Each course consists of one classroom lesson followed by a field trip practicum. Classes take place at the Biodiversity Education Center, where students explore foundational concepts through engaging activities. Each Field trip is hosted at various conservation sites throughout North Texas. These practicums give students the opportunity to apply the concepts they learned in class, develop skills, and experience wildlife first-hand.
Once they've completed the program, graduates will have the opportunity to help train future Junior Master Naturalists by becoming volunteers themselves!
Register to join the first cohort of Jr. Master Naturalists at coppellactivities.com. The cost is $115 for Coppell residents, $125 for non-residents. Space is limited.
Please note that at least one guardian must provide transportation and accompany his or her children during each field trip activity.
