What in the world is going on?

The words “Foreign Policy” often bring about a deer-in-the-headlights reaction. We’re here to help as we continue Great Decisions in 2016.

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The name is shared by a national civic-education program, briefing book, teacher’s guide and PBS television series produced by the Foreign Policy Association.

Be prepared to read short articles so you can be ready to discuss some of the most critical global issues facing America today.

 The eight critical foreign policy challenges for 2016 are:

• The Middle East

• Rise of ISIS; the Future of Kurdistan

• Migration

• The Koreas

• The United Nations

• Climate Change

• Cuba and the U.S.

Can you handle the truth? Family history research is a burgeoning pursuit thanks to TV programs like "Who Do You Think You Are?", "Genealogy Roadshow," and "Finding Your Roots." But before you jump in, have you asked yourself if you’re fully prepared for what you might discover? Together we will be opening closets to expose skeletons, peeking under the lid of Pandora's Box, and shining light on the ethical dilemmas you may encounter in the quest to find your missing ancestors. They may have good reasons why they're hiding from you.

Things are gonna get wild in Wheat Ridge.

Join Nature's Educators for Talon Talk and learn about characteristics that define birds of prey from others. Just as the name states, birds of prey hunt and feed off animals. They’re built with incredible eye sight, strong talons and heavy-duty beaks. A few familiar birds of prey include condors, eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey, owls, and vultures. Nature’s Educators come in for a landing at Wheat Ridge to teach about the birds' personal histories, anatomy, hunting strategies, habitats, and why they're important to our ecosystems. Spread your wings and meet some fine feathered stars of the talon show. Space is limited to the first 30 participants.

2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 30

We've rescheduled this program for Dec. 30, 6 - 8 p.m.

It’s not always about the North Pole in December. While the little ones may be focused on the North Pole, you can have fun learning about the South Pole. 

Roald Amundsen reached the South Pole on December 15, 1911. Known as “the last of the Vikings,” Amundsen and his expedition team from newly-independent Norway raced against the British Empire in one of the greatest international races prior to the race to the moon. As you can imagine, the journey was full of tragedy and triumph.

Join us as a member from Active Minds tells Amundsen’s historic and adventurous tale. It’s a very cool way to celebrate the anniversary of this polarizing event. Yes, I just said that. And yes, my puns are going south.

6 p.m. Dec. 30
