    Outdoor Education

    Environmental Outdoor Education provides educators unique opportunities to use nature as a learning tool. This department provides students with multiple experiences connecting them to their natural environment.

    This program is an educational experience that relates to the academic standards and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). We seek to enhance the development of the individual academically, socially and physically.  It is meant to be an important part of a student's educational experience, not just a fun addition or field trip.

    Through this program, we offer hands-on activities and special presentations in the classroom, school habitats on the campus that can be used for interdisciplinary lessons on a daily basis and organized field studies where students have the opportunity to become immersed in a learning experience with a park or natural area.
