The Hi Lonesome chapter was formed in 2008 and is based in Cole Camp,
Missouri. Chapter members are residents of Benton, Pettis, Hickory and
Moniteau counties.

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 mission is to engage Missourians in the stewardship of our state's natural resources through science-based education and volunteer community service.

Missouri Master Naturalist volunteers support conservation efforts and natural resource education in their local communities.
