Texas Master Naturalist

Steve Marwitz is the Rotarian of the week!!

The Mission

The Texas 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 for the State of Texas.  Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts.

In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.

Steve Marwitz has a B.S. degree in Marine Biology from Texas A&M University.

He was employed as a Texas Park and Wildlife Department Fisheries Biologist for 14 years in the San Antonio Bay System and later in the field of Environmental, Health, Safety and Communications for Formosa Plastics Corporation USA for 31 years.  He is now retired and likes to contribute back to the community and to travel internationally whenever possible.

Steve Marwitz has been and is currently active in several community impact organizations.  He is and/or formally a Texas Certified Master Naturalist, San Antonino Bay Partnership Board Member, Rotarian President and District Governor, School Board Member and Past President, United Way Campaign Director, City Parks Board Member, Chamber of Commerce Director, Hospital Foundation Member, United Methodist Church Administration Board Member, and student Mentor.  Steve's hobbies are photography and hunting.  He is husband to Cheryl Marwitz, father to four and grandfather to fifteen.
