Behind the scenes at the Dallas County Community College District, there’s a Sustainability Team pushing students and staff to new heights of sustainability.

• Last year, the U.S. Forest Service locked the gate to significant areas of Lake Fannin Park, a wilderness gem on the Red River

• As a result, volunteers who restored the historic park have been unable to continue.
