Indian Trail Master Naturalist Chapter

Interested in dragonflies?

The community is invited to join the Indian Trail Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists at its next meeting, Monday, June 24, in the Family Life Center at First United Methodist Church, 505 W. Marvin Ave., Waxahachie. 

The program begins at 7 p.m., with photographer Tom Fleming presenting, “Dragonfly – Top Gun.” The chapter will hold its business meeting at 6 p.m., prior to the program.

Fleming has been an avid photographer of natural phenomena: stars, astronomical events, cloud formations, lightning, storms and tornadoes as well as wildlife. He travels to national and state parks and ranches to image landscapes, wildflowers and “virtually anything that moves.” 

He describes himself as “a huge fan of dragonflies” and will share his directly observed information and anecdotes about their behaviors.

The Indian Trail Chapter is part of the statewide Texas Master Naturalist volunteer program of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

The Master Naturalist program’s mission is to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.

This program is part of a series of free and open to the public Master Naturalist programs offered from 7-8 p.m. the fourth Monday (generally) of each month. Attendees are encouraged to bring a friend and enjoy the program.
