Kids 12 and under are free. A lot of fun activities are planned for May 19

The California Living Museum will host its 35th Birthday Bash on Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In celebration, kids 12 years old and under are FREE and must be accompanied by an adult. As always, CALM members are admitted free.

 Once again, CALM has a line-up of presentations and activities that will provide entertainment for just about everyone. 

How does a trout cake sound? CALM’s bears love them. Several animals will receive Birthday “cakes” made especially with them in mind. Throughout the day, cake presentations will be made at different animal exhibits.

 There are scheduled Keeper Chats four times daily and zoo docents will stroll the grounds with CALM’s ambassador animals. A variety of nature-related and civic organizations will be on hand to provide party guests with information and give-a-ways.

 At noon, Steve Martin’s Working Wildlife (featuring Jeff Lee) will make a return appearance with animals from around the globe. And, guests can conquer the Condor Challenge, a 32-foot Climbing Tower for FREE. The train will be running and tickets are only $1 per person.

 Hunsaker Brothers Carnie Corn will have their food and beverage booth featuring kettle corn, funnel cakes, hand-dipped corn dogs and shaved ice.
