The El Paso Trans-Pecos Junior Master Naturalist Program. This program is for ages between 10 to 15 or Advanced grade 5th to 9th . The goal is to provide the youth with an understanding of Texas plants, water, soils, wildlife and imprint a sense of excitement, passion, and concern for nature, and to bring children and their families into nature more frequently. There are 14 sessions – twice a month on Saturdays and they will start at about 9:00 am for an hour up to two hours depending on the lesson taught, that includes field trips. Junior Master Naturalists will explore the nature in El Paso County through presentations by Master Naturalist volunteers, hands-on learning activities, and field trips. To earn the certificate of completion and the official junior master naturalist pin you must attend all classes. One class will be allowed to be missed but you will need to make it up by volunteering on an event with a Senior Master Naturalist that he/she may be volunteering with the community.
