Mid-Coast Chapter, Texas Master Naturalist
Here in the Coastal Bend, the eastern ecozone meets the western, the Gulf of Mexico meets the Coastal Prairies, and the Live Oak Savannah of east Texas meets the Tamaulipan Thorn Scrub of south Texas. We are at the heart of the Central Flyway for migratory birds and butterflies, where flocks fuel up for their fall trip to Central America and resupply on their spring trip back north. This confluence of ecologies creates an area of great biodiversity in which Mid-Coast Chapter Texas Master Naturalists learn, volunteer, and play.
The next MCTMN chapter meeting is August 10 at the new Powderhorn Wildlife Management Area, which is not open to the public. The first event of the day is an optional iNaturalist bioblitz to assist TPWD in documenting flora and fauna on the Powderhorn, followed by a presentation by the manager and our regular business meeting.
