Walnut Creek, CA — Lindsay Wildlife Museum announces a second Free Admission Day will be held on Saturday, August 22.
WHAT: Free wildlife Admission Day
WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Lindsay Wildlife Museum, 1931 First Ave., Walnut Creek
Lindsay Wildlife Museum will offer free admission throughout the day on Saturday, Aug. 22. Families can go eye-to-eye with the museum’s live, wild animals (such as eagles, owls, hawks, bobcat, fox, snakes and spiders) and learn how these animals live in the wild or, when necessary, are fed and cared for in captivity.
Hands on activities for young children will also be available. Picnics and playing in adjacent Larkey Park are all part of the fun.
“Learning about nature is a great motivator to go out and be part of it, and as Fall approaches, there’s no better time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful open spaces of the Bay Area,” said Loren Behr, Lindsay Wildlife Museum’s executive director. “We hope people will come to the museum for a day of fun and learning, then go out to play and explore.”
Lindsay Wildlife Museum is known regionally for the live, wild California native animals on display, its wildlife hospital and high quality education programs. The museum exhibits a collection of live, native California animals, a hands-on discovery room for children, a pet education section with domestic animals, changing exhibits, scores of educational programs, and a wildlife rehabilitation hospital that treats about 6,000 animals every year.
** The Free Day program is provided with the support of The Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation and S.D. Bechtel Foundation.
The museum is a place for adults, children and the whole family to enjoy. Check it out and you’ll see what I mean. /Gary
