Junior Master Naturalist Program Enrolling for Fall




Registration for fourth to sixth grade students in the Junior Master Naturalist: Explore the True Nature of Texas program opens in July, with classes running from September through May at the Biodiversity Education Center in Coppell Nature Park. The program encourages children to become lovers of nature and responsible stewards of the environment through engaging classroom training and field-based discoveries. 

Led by the Biodiversity Center’s educational staff and North Texas Master Naturalist volunteers, this program includes seven sections that introduce different aspects of the natural environment. Each section 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 conservation sites throughout North Texas. 

The cost is $115 for Coppell residents, $125 for non-residents. Location: 367 Freeport Pkwy., Coppell. For more information, call 972-304-3581, email bec@coppelltx.gov or visit CoppellTx.gov/jr-master-naturalist.
