Noontime Nature with Kevin Cook: Echoes to Bugles: Stories of Colorado Mammals

12/2/14 12-1 p.m., 2-3 p.m., and 12/3/14 6-7 p.m.

"Moving as a Chess Match"
To get from where it sleeps to where it eats, a Bobcat has to move; so does the Mountain Cottontail, its prey. But movement attracts attention. A Bobcat seen is a Bobcat avoided; a Cottontail seen is a Cottontail caught. For both Bobcat and Cottontail, the interaction of predator and prey is a chess match of moving and not moving 

No registration is required. Please come at least 20 minutes early as seating is limited (due to City Fire Code) and on a first-come first-serve basis.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Loveland Library.

Kevin Cook at Loveland Lights 2014
 

We all know the folklore of frontier-day saloons and the storied history of Colorado water law, but the natural history of nuts is a seldom-told and lesser-known story. Colorado has its share of both nuts and those that live off them. Of the nuthatches we have three: pygmy, red-breasted, and white-breasted; of the nutcrackers we have many: Clark’s, red-vested, black-helmeted, sword-bearing, and many more. In “Whiskey...Water...and Nuts” we’ll take a merry yet accurate look at the botany of nuts and the zoology of nutcrackers, real and imagined.

Part of Loveland Lights 2014: A Celebration of Winter Holiday Traditions, sponsored by the Friends of the Loveland Library.

No registration is required, but seating is limited, so plan to arrive at least 20-30 minutes early.

Living in the US during World War II (AND Korea, AND Vietnam, AND Iraq AND Afghanistan) was/is safe and comfortable for most people.  But war is ugly wherever it occurs, not only on the battlefield but also for the populations living in the countries or near the belligerents and their corresponding combat zones.  They can be subjected to destructive aerial bombardment, displacement, vital life shortages, political intimidation, occupation by foreign troops, and all the fear and suffering that accompanies those wartime situations.

The German stories in this book are a sample of such conditions, as told by civilian “victims” as well as military personnel describing hardship and suffering unknown to American  civilians.  They also offered descriptions of their coming to America—the “Promised Land”—and their successes here.

These subjects were mostly from the Front Range of Colorado.  The memoirs presented here are a fraction of what is out there waiting to be recorded; every American city and state could likely publish its own version from their immigrant residents.

No registration is required.

The Little Thompson Observatory is a teaching, outreach and research institution for K-12 classes in the local northern Colorado school districts. The observatory is available for use by community groups (reservation form at www.starkids.org) with the goal of getting kids interested in science, astronomy and mathematics. Public viewing nights with a speaker are held the third Friday of each month, and are announced in local newspapers. The LTO has hosted more than 45,000 visitors from its opening in 1999, with 68% of our visitors in our target audience group of K-12 grades.

We also host a large variety of visitor groups by appointment and give them a very memorable evening or daytime session, teaching them about the objects in our sky with the help of our constellation wall and letting them observe these objects through our telescopes. We also offer monthly community outreach through our public star nights with knowledgeable speakers, who discuss a variety of interesting astronomical and scientific topics. While the young people are always interested in looking through the telescope to see the wonders of the sky, the adults are always in line to see them, also.

The talk will cover the LTO, its history and charter, and an overview of some of the sky objects that can be seen through the telescopes. Our goal is to encourage adults to bring their children or grandchildren for a talk about the sky and for an opportunity to see the wonders of the sky for themselves, the same way that astronomer have been doing since the invention of the telescope.

The Observatory houses an 18” Tinsley Cassegrain, a 6” Astro-physics Refractor and the recently acquired historical 24” telescope from Mt Wilson, which was used by NASA during the Apollo Space Program to research the surface of the moon and select the various landing areas for the missions.

For all ages, no registration is required.
