About Us
The Missouri Master Naturalist™ program is a community-based natural resource education and volunteer service program for adults, sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the University of Missouri Extension.
 
The Loess Hills Chapter was established  in the spring of 2011, and named after the unusual geological formations of loess soil in the region. The word “loess” comes from a German word meaning “loose” and describes the way the soil is blown to its resting place. The jagged edges of the soil particles allow it to “lock” together and form some very impressively steep hills.
