Bluestem Master Naturalists

Grayson County Texas Master Naturalists

 

Welcome!


Bluestem chapter is the Grayson County Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists. The Texas Master Naturalists are dedicated to developing a corps of well-informed volunteers who provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. That is our official definition. We are people who love being outdoors, learning about the birds and the bees, the plants and the trees, fish in the seas,  and rivers and lakes, where opossum and deer, racoons and bear come to drink. And that makes us want to understand the connections of ecologies and what's important to our environment. If this sounds like you, check out our other pages.  

Want to be a Master Naturalist? Look for classes in 2014.

Texas Honey Queen, Shelby Kilpatrick, talks about honey bees, pollination, bee-keeping, and produst of the hive. She will be bringing and observation hive of live honey bees, a demonstration bee hive, the tools needed for a begining beekeeper (including a bee suit) as well as educational posters and sample pollen and beeswax.

After her lecture, particpants can taste honey from around the world to see the difference that the different plant nectars the bees collect have on the honey. 

This is sure to be fun for all ages and a great way to learn about something as important to our food as the honey bee. (and get free honey!)

This event is free to attend however donations will be gratefully accepted.
