A Million Dollars of Service

Accepting the symbolic check for $1million in service to the region:
Barrett Durst, Superintendent of Big Bend Ranch State Park; Susan
Penney of CDRI; Michelle Haggerty, State Coordinator for Texas
Master Naturalist; Julie Morton, Field Rep for U.S. Congressman
Pete Gallego
Saturday, the Tierra Grande Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist (serving the Big Bend/Davis Mountains area) celebrated a MAJOR milestone.  This corps of trained volunteers dedicate service to parks, communities and non-profits to benefit our natural lands.  And Saturday, the chapter celebrated that fact that since its formation in 2005, their members volunteered time equivalent of $1 million in support to the region!

The chapter works on trail building, area clean-ups, scientific studies, children's education programs, public hikes and adventures in our state and national parks, at our libraries, our natural lands.
