Know your 2017 Newbies Phase 2

by Kris Kirkwood on June 4, 2017

All 16 members of the class of 2017 completed their initial training Saturday June 3 at Coleto Creek Park with a plant walk and presentation on the importance of native plants in all the habitats of our eight-county area. The class included Donna Bailey, who certified in another Chapter but wanted our training when she transferred to MCTMN. 

Left to right: Scott Guilbeaux, Bob Cunningham, Phil Stapleton, Ron Mildenstein, Rebecca Stapleton, Bill Burge (Class Rep), Marti Sterne, Neill Amsler, Glenda Walker, Robyn Savage, Lisa DeVries, and Neli Spurrell. Not present for the photo: Donna Bailey, Mary Jane Dence, Jynatha Kleypas, and Dora Ann Ortego. 

This is an outstanding class—Eight of the members-in-training also certified as Texas Master Naturalists: Bob Cunningham, Dora Ann Ortego, Ron Mildenstein, Robyn Savage, Phil and Rebecca Stapleton, Marti Sterne, and Glenda Walker.

Following the training, old and new members celebrated with one of the famous MCTMN Potlucks.
