Looking for exciting opportunities to learn something new about local wildlife or volunteer in the outdoors? The North Texas Master Naturalist group maintains a comprehensive calendar of events for many of our local environmental preservation and development organizations (i.e., Cedar Ridge Preserve, Native Plant Society of Texas, Texas Master Naturalist, Connemara Conservancy, Heard Museum). All events are open to the public.
If you’re simply seeking more information on Texas native trees/shrubs/mammals/reptiles, identifying invasive species or educating yourself on the natural history of North Texas, see the Links page on the North Texas Master Naturalist website.

Many of you are probably familiar with Obama’s call for a National Day of Service, which he’s designated for Monday, January 19th, MLK, Jr. Day. Actually, service opportunities are being scheduled all weekend long (1/17-1/18).
If you’re interested in volunteering and you don’t know where to go, you can search for organized events in your neighborhood on the USAService website. Just enter your zip code and preferred location distance radius and let the power of the Interweb (and some fancy database software) do all the work for you. This site will be available after the Inauguration and act as a match-up site to connect folks interested in volunteering with volunteer opportunities.
You can also register your service project, if you are planning one.
But wait, if you sign up now, you’ll also receive a second Sense of Patriotism absolutely FREE!
Disclaimer: Sense of Patriotism is non-transferable. However, it is contagious. Er, I guess it is transferable…
