Travel to Chile—
South America's
Extreme Southern Core

Thursday, January 6, 2011 - Sunday, January 16, 2011

This extraordinary adventure in association with the UNT Center for Achievement and Lifelong Learning took the participants inside the Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program and throughout South America's extreme southern core. Guided by scientists and students from UNT and the Universidad de Magallenes (UMAG), they visited the Omora Ethnobotanical Park and the UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve, one of the world's remaining wilderness areas, and cruised through the Straits of Magellan and the Beagle Channel. The enthusiasm and insight of UNT, UMAG, and other international scientists through lectures and conversations aboard the cruise ship enhanced the educational value of this trip.
