As a result of the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas Master Naturalist Program has decided to suspend this year’s in-person event in Houston, Texas, in favor of a fully virtual experience.
The decision reflects TMN’s responsibility to protect the health and wellbeing of its members, conference attendees and the general population while still serving its mission to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas.
While we may not be seeing you in Houston this fall in person, we are committed to creating a valuable and engaging educational and networking experience that mirrors our in-person Annual Meeting. In fact, we’re quite excited about all of the new possibilities that a virtual conference opens up for our event!
Please save the dates for us now! We’ve shifted the dates to Wednesday through Saturday to accommodate the virtual setting. We’ll be online with you October 14th through 17th with four days of sessions, interactive programs, and some surprises we’ll be sharing later this summer.
For news, updates and details about the Annual Meeting as our plans for the virtual conference develop, please check out our website – https://txmn.tamu.edu/2020-annual-meeting/
Don’t worry about missing out on Houston. We’ll make sure to get back there soon!!
