19th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count and Suet Give-Away

Sun, Feb 7, 2016 through Mon, Feb 15, 2016 All Day

Audubon Rockies, the Regional Office of the National Audubon Society, has partnered with two great stores in Fort Collins, Wild Birds Unlimited and Jax Ranch and Home, to celebrate this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count (Feb 12-15) by giving participants (one per family) a free block of suet to attract birds to your home, office, or school. Simply come in to the Wild Birds Unlimited or Jax Ranch and Home from February 7th through the 15th during store hours to receive your gift while supplies last. Suet is a combination of fat and seed that attracts winter hardy birds such as chickadees and woodpeckers who stay in Colorado unlike many migrating birds.

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place each Presidents Day Weekend and is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org .

Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate from your backyard, or anywhere in the world.

400 North College Avenue
Fort Collins CO 80524

Featuring work by Caleb Cole, Zackary Drucker, Ervin A. Johnson, Laurence Rasti, and Krista Wortendyke
At the heart of every political and social movement is a question about who deserves to have power and control, whether over territory, access, rights, or freedoms. Around the world, we are witnessing struggles connected to race, sexuality, gender, and class. The artists in this exhibition ask questions about who has agency and in what situations, working from their own experiences within these complex social and political forces.

Boy by Diana Son

Fri, Feb 12, 2016 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

this is a recurring event

University Center for the Arts

1400 Remington St
Fort Collins CO 80524

In this work shopped production of Diana Son’s Boy, a bright cartoon of her newest play, an “everyman” couple conspires at the birth of their fourth daughter to announce they finally have a son, and they raise the baby as a boy. They call her Boy. This seems to work, until Boy begins to develop characteristics of Girl. Son, the Korean-American playwright of Stop Kiss and Satellites, writes with a striking, storybook tone, which runs like a backbone through the play. The play, now in a draft that, until now has been unproduced, is funny, touching, and explores gender like it has never been explored before.
