Memories of a Lifetime: Continuing Education's Antarctic Cruise Continues

Dec 14, 12:31 pm

Participants in the Antarctic cruise find the beginning of each day is like opening a new gift from Mother Nature. So far their days have run the gamut -- from a penguin breeding colony to rafts of penguins; from seeing dramatic icebergs to riding the waves created by rocking icebergs, from yoga on the beach to camping in the snow atop an island.

The Adventure Begins

Dec 6, 3:06 pm
Antartic Iceberg

More than 30 Continuing Education students and trip leaders Peg Rees and Sharon Schafer are on an 11-day active adventure to Antarctica. You will be able to join them as they are introduced to the Antarctic’s unique wildlife and landscapes, walk on ice, snow, and rock to visit penguins, and explore on-land cultural sites.

New Boot Camps to Outsmart the SAT and ACT

Nov 19, 3:26 pm
Student in Library

UNLV Continuing Education has joined with Catalyst to offer SAT and ACT boot camps. The momentum-boosting weekend seminars will arm students with go-to strategies for every question they will face on the day of the test. Students will learn to spot hidden clues that instantly reveal the main idea in long reading passages. They will also find out how to avoid the four sneakiest ways SAT and ACT grammar questions try to trick students. In addition, students will be able to compose a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the SAT asks.

Gardening Gone Wild

Make a difference in your community! Native plants help prevent erosion, reduce dust, help to thwart invasive species and provide important habitat for wildlife. Join a team of volunteers to plant native trees at Corn Creek. There are 3 different areas that will be planted at this event. Individuals need to be in fairly good physical condition as planting requires the ability to bend, kneel, get a little dirty, and lift 1 gallon and larger potted plants. Plan to be outside in cool, sunny conditions with no shade - a hat and sunscreen are recommended.

National Family Day on Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Volunteers will assist Refuge staff in the restoration of disturbed landscape. The planting of native species is an important part of the restoration process as native plants compete against exotic species, stabilize disturbed soils, and provide habitat for wildlife.With this planting event, the refuge hopes to re-create and restore upland habitat for a variety of the natural local species. Enjoy planting both small and 5-gallon containers of grasses, shrubs and trees. Individuals need to be in good physical condition as planting requires bending, kneeling, and getting dirty.
