Winter Extended Learning Course-Deserts

We are excited to offer our first winter session of our yearly extended learning opportunities. Our conservation based classes are offered in conjunction with Minot State University - Continuing Education Level. Each completed 15 hour class earns 1 college credit.

This January's subject will be Deserts. Deserts is a section of our HELP; Habitat, Ecology, Learning Program. The HELP program was created by the Wildlife Conservation Society. The curriculum is designed to help students discover how desert plants and animals have found solutions to the unique survival problems imposed by the harsh conditions of their habitat. The target classroom group of this curriculum is geared toward 3rd through 6th grade, although any educator could modify the information to fit most any age group.

Deserts Class:

  • January 29th & 30th: 4:30-7:30pm, and January 31st: 8am-5pm.
  • $200 per person - class plus 1 college credit
