A Message from our President

Fall is just around the corner! We can all look forward to bird migrations, cooler weather, and the Texas Master Naturalist 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting! Though volunteer opportunities may have been scaled back this year, there are lots of ways to get hours both at home and in person at our partners’ work days. Read Scott’s summer update here.

September Chapter Meeting this Wednesday!

On Wednesday, September 2nd from 7-8:30, Christopher Roos, Professor of Anthropology at SMU, will present Native Hunters, Prairies, and Bison, a look at the methods indigenous people used to manage prairies and bison herds. He will discuss the role of fire in the evolution of global grasslands and methods that Indigenous hunters use controlled wildfires in grasslands to improve their hunting. Read all about it here.

Dragonflyer #73 – June 2018

A Message from our President

Bruce Stewart summarizes the role of the citizen scientist as it has developed through the centuries, and reminds us of what we can do to continue this valuable work in the community. Read the article here (https://public.ntmn.org/presidents-message-what-is-old-is-new-again) .

New Look, Same Dragonflyer!

As Newsletter Editor, I have the opportunity to read up on the chapter’s happenings before anyone else. And, as our sometimes 14-page .pdfs have proven, we are a busy chapter! Well, we assume you’re just as busy doing outdoor things, or nature-related things, or family things, or… well, you get it. We want to provide you with the information you want, in an easy to read and search format.

From now on, we’ll be hosting our Dragonflyer-worthy content on our NTMN website (https://public.ntmn.org/) , and then sending you the most current info and happenings straight to your inbox. Read the articles you want. Skip over the ones that don’t apply to you. And, you can always check in on our website if you want to know more.

Let us know what you think: newsletter@ntmn.org (mailto:newsletter@ntmn.org).

I want to hear from you!

Volunteer Projects At a Glance

On March 31st at the Spring Big Chapter Project, 40 dedicated, enthusiastic Master Naturalists joined together to plant 25 native trees and 120 native plants.

Our own TPWD Advisor, Sam Kieschnick, gives his always enthusiastic account of the City Nature Challenge; it’s purpose, it’s value, and it’s results.

Quarterly Volunteer Award Winner – Natha Taylor

In Jim Folger’s article (https://public.ntmn.org/natha-taylor-historic-birder) , he notes that Natha is the “gold medalist” of birding and historian duties, and scrapbook extraordinare. Read about her efforts as a NTMN since 2001.

Native Prairie Walks

This year in April and May, the annual Native Plants & Prairies Day morphed into Native Prairie Walks (https://public.ntmn.org/native-prairie-walks). Several NTMNs volunteered for this effort, and its success can be measured by the amount of attendees that appeared throughout Dallas County to learn about native plants and walked away as outdoor enthusiasts.
