EXPLORING POST HAPPENINGS…
The Dallas Arboretum Post 8525 had a great 2016-2017 school year partnering with Skyline High School's Horticulture, Floral Design, and Agriculture courses. Professionals in a variety of careers visited the students in their classes, and the Arboretum hosted a field trip where students learned about monitoring a trial garden where new plant breeds are being tested.
Architecture Demarest Post 3401 Explorers learn about Structure and Design through creating cardboard furniture, and learned about different facets of the architecture career field through monthly meetings.

Singley Academy Criminal Justice Post 720 and Dallas Fire-Rescue Post 1166 did a great job showing off their skills and programs at the Circle Ten Friends of Scouting Dinner.
The Dallas Zoo Post 605 had a great year with monthly in class presentations at Nimitz High School followed by weekend field experiences. Nimitz Zoo Explorers volunteered their time and knowledge at the Dallas Zoo’s Conservation Weekend. Students informed visitors of different actions they could take to help conserve wildlife and helped visitors take a pledge for conservation. The Dallas Zoo hosted a jobs-focused presentation in the classroom in October and followed it up with a field day in Cedar Creek. At the field day in Cedar Creek, the students restored wildlife habitats in Cedar Creek, removed 12 bags of litter, plus a grocery cart, tire, and baby stroller.
UT Southwestern Medical Post 1919 Explorers had a great time learning about routine medical exams.
