I am delighted to announce that Chris Doffitt, Field Biologist with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, will be our guest at our January LMN-NE meeting. Chris will speak to us about Louisiana’s Natural Areas Registry program.

The Registry program was created in 1987. It enables Louisiana to recognize, encourage and support citizens in making valuable contributions to preserving our state’s rich natural heritage. Chris will explain how the program works, answer questions and help us as naturalists to be advocates for our natural areas.

Our January meeting is scheduled Tuesday, January 9, 6:30 – 8 p.m., at the Black Bayou NWR Visitor’s Center. For those who are members of LMN-NE, attendance will count towards your 30 hours of required service/education in 2018.

The meeting is open to all who are interested in Master Naturalists. Bring friends! This will be a great introduction to our organization and the learning opportunities we will provide.
