The Confluence Chapter was founded in 2005 as the fifth Master Naturalist chapter in Missouri. The chapter was formed by 24 individuals from St. Charles County, St. Louis
County, and St. Louis City after completing the Missouri Master Naturalist™ training program. We share a common interest in nature and
in volunteering to help protect, preserve and restore Missouri's natural heritage. Our members live in the region West of the Missouri-Mississippi
Confluence and from both north and south of the Missouri River.
We operate according to the bylaws and operating handbook of the Missouri Master Naturalist Program developed by the Missouri Department of Conservation and University of Missouri Extension.
