Interpretive Hike at Bobcat Ridge

Please note that the date for this event has been changed from Monday, May 22nd to Tuesday, May 30th.

We are fortunate to have David Bayer, a master naturalist with the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas, as one of our members. David has offered to guide us on a hike at Bobcat Ridge. The hike is about 3 miles and follows the Valley Loop trail.


Trail description: The trail passes for one mile through the prairie in the glade (valley). It then ascends gently up about 100 feet in elevation for about a half-mile. We’ll turn south and follow the trail along the lower shrub and tree line for 1.2mile and then descend a half-mile back to the entrance.


The interpretive hike passes through three life zones: prairie, shrub lands and lower montane forest. Each of these vegetative zones will be explained as to its primary vegetation and the birds and mammals adapted to each. Several important geological principles and examples will also be demonstrated, e.g. Bobcat Ridge is the boundary between the foothills’ hogbacks and uplifts of the Rocky Mountains.

If you enjoy hiking and want to learn more about the natural areas, please join us on Tuesday, May 30th from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM, Members only.


Bring a lunch to enjoy in the shade of the ponderosa forest about half-way through the hike. A brochure is available on-line at:
https://www.fcgov.com/naturalareas/pdf/bcr-brochure2014.pdf?1443629521

Directions to the Trailhead:

Bobcat Ridge's address is 10184 West County Road 32C, Loveland.


From Fort Collins, take Harmony Road west, it turns into CR 38 E. Follow CR 38 E to Masonville. Go left (south) at the Masonville Mercantile onto CR 27. Follow CR 27 about 1 mile to CR 32 C, head west about 1 mile to the Bobcat Ridge parking lot.


From Loveland, go west on Highway 34 about 4.5 miles west of Wilson Avenue. Turn north on CR 27 by Big Thompson Elementary and drive 4.5 miles. Turn left on CR 32C and go 1 mile west to the Bobcat Ridge parking lot.

Discover why and how:
     Producing Oklahoma! is a challenge on many levels,
     Rodgers & Hammerstein created a uniquely rich play with memorable music,
    A ballet is incorporated and established a career for one of America’s icon, 
    The story is small, but the complexities are huge.

Joan Miro and 20th Century Modernism

Early in his career, Joan Miró (pronounced Jwan mr-OH) primarily painted still-lifes, landscapes and generic scenes. But in 1920 Miró made his first trip to Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso, and his work changed forever. While Miro can’t be identified with a single school, he is most often classified as a Surrealist. His artistic career is one of persistent experimentation, in paint, print and sculpture. Join us as we explore one of the most interesting artists of the 20th century.


Thursday, June 4 – Senior Center Auditorium, 10 -12 noon

Jack Reacher in Book and Film

Registration opens on Tuesday, February 17, 2015  (Open to members and Non-Members)

Jack Reacher in Book and Film
One of the top mystery writers working today is Lee Child. His hero, Jack Reacher, has found millions of fans around the world. In December 2012, Paramount Studios released the movie Jack Reacher, starring Tom Cruise, based on the novel One Shot by Lee Child. Read the novel and then join us in the auditorium as we view the film and discuss the question: Which format tells the better story and why?

Here is a synopsis of the movie:
In an innocent heartland city, five are shot dead by an expert sniper. The police quickly identify and arrest the culprit, and build a slam-dunk case. But instead of confessing, the accused man writes the words, "Jack Reacher." Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man's guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.

Facilitators: Mac McNeill & Rodger Myers
When: Thursday, March 26, 1 – 4pm

Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson reunite with the acclaimed filmmakers Merchant Ivory for this moving story of blind devotion and repressed love.  Hopkins plays Stevens, the perfect English butler, as he serves his master, Lord Darlington (James Fox). Like other members of the British upper class in the 1930s, Darlington is duped by the Nazis into trying to establish a rapport between Germany and the British Government.  Thompson plays the estate’s housekeeper, who watches the ggoings-on with horror.  Despite her apprehensions, she and Stevens gradually fall in love, though neither will admit it.

Front Range Forum Reads

Front Range Forum Reads!


Front Range Forum Reads is aimed at bringing our membership together over the discussion of two books each year, a nonfiction book in the winter and a work of fiction in the summer. Our Winter 2015 selection, our very first selection is . . .


             “One Summer: America, 1927”
                            By Bill Bryson


Knowing that history is a favorite subject area of FRF readers, we have chosen a readable, lively account of several significant events that occurred in a few months in a single year. Bryson covers Lindbergh’s solo flight across the Atlantic, Babe Ruth’s long-standing homerun record, and the low-key presidency of Calvin Coolidge, along with the capture of Al Capone, the seeds of the Great Depression two years later, and other fascinating stories. Old Firehouse Books will have the paperback edition for sale for $15 (their discounted price).

Once you’ve read the book, here’s what is planned:

A Deeper Dive (Saturday, January 17 from 10:00 to 11:00) – On that Saturday we offer you the chance to go deeper into one of the major topics covered in the book; choose from among these three concurrent one-hour programs, which will combine videos and discussion to do a “deeper dive”:

Lindbergh and Aviation – Twinberry Auditorium                                                                Baseball, Boxing, and the Sports of the 1920s – Foxtail 2                                          The Politicians and Anarchists – Sand Lily

The Twinberry Theater at the Fort Collins Senior Center is the venue for our next movie playing on Wednesday, October 8. Doors open at 1:30 pm, the movie starts at 2:00 pm. There will be free popcorn available. Following the movie, a facilitator-led discussion will allow viewers to participate in a dialogue on the film. 

This month's film is an irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility. Based on a true story of a relationship between a handicapped millionaire and his street smart ex-con caretaker, the story depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals, who on the surface seem to have nothing in common.
