- One of the many booths set up to learn about Wildlife Rescue
Our Dad Blogger and Contributor Robert had the opportunity to experience a special peek at the Discovery Science Center’s newest exhibit, Wildlife Rescue and shares all about it.
Robert stayed about ten feet away from this lizard, but Ava wanted to get up close
If its an animal and it crawls, slithers, hops, or just looks cute, chances are that they are being featured currently at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana.
Most children have an innate curiosity and love for animals, and my 5 year old daughter is no different. What makes the current exhibit, “Wildlife Rescue” so much fun for kids is that they get to hold and pet live animals in an interactive setting. With many hands on booths set up throughout the facility, there was plenty to do and see as we learned about efforts to sustain the animal kingdom in modern society. We learned that several species of animals are presently endangered, but with focused recovery efforts we can create an environment where these animals can prosper. During our visit to “Wildlife Rescue” it was interesting to learn about different methods being used to help animals by lessening the threats to their survival.

Bubblefest is Back!!!!
There is one thing that will always make my kiddos smile from ear to ear, bubbles! When the weather is right we head to the park or our front yard and blow as many bubbles as we can. It’s fun and sometimes even our dogs join in on the fun.
Spring Break is right around the corner for most families and that means one of my favorite events will be back in town. The Discovery Science Center will once again host Bubblefest! This fantastic show featuring Bubble Scientist Deni Yang will take you take you into the world of bubbles! Yang’s world renowned show features bubbles of every shape and size and will keep your kiddos entertained for the duration of the show.
I’ve watched the show for the past four years and I can’t wait to head back again with the kiddos this weekend. The show will be at The Cube from March 31st to April 22nd. To purchase tickets and to learn more about this bubble extravaganza head here.
