This month at the Circle Ten Council Executive Board Meeting, members of the National Exploring Staff and National Exploring Committee paid a visit to deliver a tribute to fallen Dallas Police Department and DART officers. At the National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference, over 2,500 Explorers from all over the country signed 8-foot banners to show their support for those officers that lost their lives in the tragic events in Dallas this past summer. Advisors Senior Corporal Angie Hernandez and Senior Corporal James Farmer were both in attendance to receive the banner on behalf of the Dallas Police Department.

Welcome the Dallas Zoo to the Exploring Family!
In October, the Dallas Zoo spearheaded a brand new partnership with the youth of the Nimitz High School Wildlife classes. Each month, representatives from the zoo will visit the classes to introduce them to the ins and outs of various careers at the zoo. The following Saturday, students will attend a field experience focused on conservation of animal habitats. The star of the show for the first in class experience was a dried and sealed elephant dung, showing the elephant's diet of grasses. As well, Explorers had to guess various zoo careers based off of a tool used in that career - from zookeepers to accountants to animal nutritionists, these youth learned that there are many great options for a career at a zoo!
