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