Cachuma Lake Nature Center Offering Creepy, Crawly Fun with Creatures

Get a jump on Halloween with Saturday's family friendly event

Bring your family for a terrific treat: “Creepy Creatures” at the Cachuma Lake Nature Center in cooperation with the Cachuma Lake Recreation Area, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The event is free with a $10 per vehicle park admission.

There will be witches, arts and crafts activities and more to get you in the Halloween spirit!

Creepy Creatures will feature bats and owls, skulls and bones, spiders and snakes — with popcorn and punch to boot for kids of all ages.

On the lawn at the Nature Center, Gabrielle Drozdowski will introduce you to Max, her great horned owl. Alice Abela and her collection of spiders, snakes and other reptiles will offer an exciting view into a fascinating world of small beings.

Other activities will entertain youngsters and parents alike. Arts and crafts activities will be a center attraction, and Todd Baron “The Balloon Man” will be on hand to create snakes and spiders out of balloons for all.

No reservations are needed. For more information, call 805.693.0691.

— Julie McDonald is executive director of the Cachuma Lake Nature Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
