Seniors’ Council Invites Older Adults to CALF’s Lowell Ranch

Brooke Fox, CEO, will share the history of the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Foundation (CALF) and the Lowell Ranch, which was originally homesteaded in 1877, on Thursday, April 4 during the Seniors’ Council of Douglas County (SCDC) meeting. The meeting will be at Lowell Ranch south of downtown Castle Rock from 10 – 11:30 am.  Seniors’ Council meetings are free and open to the public.

CALF’s Lowell Ranch is a working educational ranch hosting a vibrant array of agriculturally oriented programs.  For example, elementary school teachers schedule field trips so students can enjoy the outdoors and learn about the foods they eat. Twice yearly, the ranch is open to the public for spring and autumn celebrations that include tours, agricultural activities and products, tractor rides, and more.  

Brooke will provide a presentation, and weather permitting, a tour of the ranch on April 4.  She may introduce animals being raised by CALF Kids – 4H or FFA members who care for livestock at CALF. The ranch boasts a modern greenhouse, a creek, barns, gardens, enclosed beehive, and plenty of open space.  

“We cannot successfully implement our programs without our amazing group of volunteers!  Volunteers help with everything from teaching visiting students to planting and caring for our produce gardens. They help with events and care for livestock.” says Brooke. “We encourage our senior friends to look into joining our wonderful group of volunteers.”
