This Weekend: An Overabundance of Good Stuff To Do With Your Family

Okay. So I'm stealing Sophie's idea a little bit. But there's kid-friendly stuff going on in town this weekend too.


Children's Seed Festival at the Botanical Garden. 10 am - 3 pm. "Visitors can learn through hands-on discovery stations about the ways seeds travel, the amazing variety of seed shapes and sizes and the incredible adaptations that allow seeds to grow in some of the harshest environments in the world. Discover how plants are "born" and take a trip through the Children’s Fantasy Garden to explore a seed’s life story. Get your hands dirty in the Seed Lab inside the Fantasy Garden’s giant pumpkin. Create works of botanical art with seeds and listen to storytellers spin tales of seeds and other garden wonders."

National Junior Ranger Day Celebration
at Petroglyph National Monument. 10 am - 3 pm. "Children of all ages are welcome to attend National Junior Ranger Day at Petroglyph. Join a park ranger to learn about native birds and reptiles, play traditional North American Indian games and hike the petroglyph viewing trails at Boca Negra Canyon to earn special Junior Ranger patches and pins."

Children's Author Event at Barnes & Noble, Coronado Mall. 3:30 pm. Local (okay, she lives in Socorro, but she's from New Mexico) author Jan Thomas will be reading and signing her book "A Birthday for Cow!"

And my favorite of all is on Sunday:

19th Annual Celebrate the Earth Fest behind La Montanita Co-op in Nob Hill. 10:30 am - 6 pm. Music, food, arts & crafts, environmental groups, food, dancing... did I mention food? They have a fun Bike Rodeo for the kids, and I'm not sure if they're doing it again this year, but last year they were giving away kids' bicycle helmets. I know we will be there. I'll be the one with the big scoop of Tara's Organic ice cream...
