Favorite thing: The Environmental Learning Center is operated by Colorado State University as a plac to educate the public about the complex issues regarding the climate, geography, flora and fauna of the Colorado Front Range. Yearround, a variety of programs are offered here, both for school groups and for adults through a variety of "continuing education" classes. The Center is conveniently located just a few minutes off I-25, and also is quite close to the center of Ft. Collins.

My younger brother volunteers at the Raptor Recovery Center here. It's a program that provides assistance (free health care, really) to our avian friends when they become injured or ill, whether through accidents or through human intervention. Some of the eagles or hawks are able to become fully "rehabilitated," and are eventually returned to the natural environment. However, some of the birds are not able to make a complete recovery, in which case the Raptor Recovery Center either provides them with long-term lodging, or makes a placement for them with various refuges around the state. It's a good place to come to learn about birds!

Fondest memory: 3745 E. Prospect, Ft. Collins
