Tracking animals, recognizing poisonous plants, identifying different types of trees, flowers and grasses…these are just a few things that Copperas Cove Junior High students enrolled in Outdoor Adventures, an alternative physical education class approved by the Texas Education Agency this year, are learning.

Students are honing their skills in outdoor survival techniques including land navigation, first aid, CPR, water and campfire safety, hunting and camping safety and how to use parachute cord for a variety of needs in the wilderness.
