Animal events for the holiday weekend

May 23, 2008 |  6:36 pm


It's a three-day weekend, which means more time for animal-themed enrichment. Our suggestions:

On Saturday you can join L.A. City Councilman Tony Cardenas and actress Linda Blair for a Pet Care Fair at Woodley Park in Van Nuys. It starts at 11:30 a.m.

If you have kids between the ages of 7 and 10, you can take them to the Aquarium of the Pacific's Junior Biologist program at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, where they have a hands-on program on sharks.

And all weekend long you can go to the L.A. Zoo for a Kung Fu Panda scavenger hunt, where kids are challenged to find three species of animals that are found in China (Disclosure: Pandas not included--you'll have to watch Panda Cam for that.)

You can also ring in the summer season by taking your dog--if you have one--to run in the sand and surf at a dogs-permitted beach in Long Beach or Huntington Beach, the latter pictured above.
