The material covered in Outdoor Adventures cannot be found in any other class. It gives students a di erent view on the outdoors and how important the world around them really is.” Doug Murray, OA student, Arlington Martin High School “This program has sparked interest for the outdoors in kids who have never experienced the outdoors before. Through this program, I have witnessed many kids roast their rst marshmallow over an open ame, shoot a bow and arrow, and cast their rst shing line.” Chris Mordecai, OA teacher, Travis Middle School, Irving I.S.D. Contact the DEF: www.dallasecologicalfoundation.org Scot McClure, DEF Coordinator 972-392-3505 scot@dallasecologicalfoundation.org All non-monetary gifts must be approved by the DEF Board of Trustees.
