A Trip to Placerita Nature Center

Michael's Scout Troop took a trip to the Placerita Nature Center on Saturday and watched the animal show. I went along as a chaperone and brought John and AJ.

It looked like rain all morning, but cleared up right at 1:00 pm, when the show was scheduled to start. We had a few light showers during the show, but Shirley Cornwall brought an umbrella she was kind enough to share.

Despite the rain, the boys had a great time! They saw a red tailed hawk, an
owl, an opossum, a snake, and a tarantula. They even had the opportunity to touch the tarantula. I abstained, but others enjoyed it.

Afterwards, we took the boys out for ice cream at Coldstone Creamery.
