Here are a few of our upcoming OASIS courses
69 - Christian & Muslim Thought on War & Peace
Christian ethics emphasize whether or not we should go to war. Muslim rules emphasize conduct in war. Neither tradition, however, has distinguished itself by total compliance with their own rules. A historical view suggests that the determining factor is more the question of which society is the predator and which the prey at a particular moment in history, reflecting the statement, "winners can afford to be generous." A lecture by Dr. Hugh Horan.
Monday, March 10, 1-2:30pm at Albuquerque Mennonite Church
77 - Crocodilian Biology & Conservation
Senior Zookeeper Matt Eschenbrenner will give a presentation on crocodiles! Of the 23 recognized species of crocodilian in the world, six are listed as Critically Endangered and another seven as Endangered or Vulnerable. This presentation will cover the reasons for decline in certain species, the global efforts to save these valuable animals, and the adaptations that have kept the creatures around for 220 million years.

100 - The Harvey Girls & Harvey House Museum: Day Trip
Enjoy an afternoon excursion to the Valencia County Harvey House Museum hosted by Chautauqua speaker Van Ann Moore. Her program, “All Aboard! West by Rail with the Harvey Girls!” highlights a new breed of independent women who boarded an Iron Horse seeking a new life. They gained responsible positions in finely run restaurants and hotels along the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway line. Fred Harvey’s legacy survives today in the Harvey House Museum which includes mementos from both the railroads and the iconic Fred Harvey restaurants. A Destination Southwest trip.
