Being a Naturalist.

today's new york times has an essay on the taxonomy of the naturalist (registration may be required, but it's free and then you can also do crossword puzzles from the archives).

very interesting reading. i did not know that texas has a master naturalist program. i'll have to check it out. unfortunately, the gulf coast chapter starts its training year in august, so i'll have to wait a bit.

i looked into the texas master gardener program a while back, but the training classes / activities of the harris county chapter all seem to be during work hours. rather limits their audience, i think.

there is also a second texas master naturalist site. it has much the same information as the texas parks and wildlife master naturalist site, lots of "under construction"pages, and a page of other nature sites and links.
