Cameron County Master Gardener Speakers Bureau Topics
As part of our education and outreach mission, the Association is able to offer speakers for non-political events and meetings. Most presentations are approximately one hour, but most can be tailored for longer or shorter periods. They are presented with projected slides and photographs. The Association is able to provide a projector and computer if you do not have one, but the facility must provide a surface upon which the presentation can be projected. The facility must also provide any microphone and amplification system if one is required.
