Improvements include sand for the animals to roll around in and the planting of native African vegetation, including acacia trees.

Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre will present the wildest show in town from April 14 through May 11 as part of its special "Spring Break" engagement of Walt Disney Pictures' new computer-animated feature, "The Wild." In addition to the film, live on stage before each show, moviegoers will have a chance to meet a colorful cast of exotic birds from around the world accompanied by their keepers from the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. "The Wild" follows an odd assortment of animals from the New York Zoo who discover what a jungle the city can be when one of their own is mistakenly shipped to the wild and they embark on a dangerous mission to rescue him. An impressive vocal ensemble featuring Kiefer Sutherland, Jim Belushi, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Cipes, William Shatner and Eddie Izzard, and Richard Kind lend their talents to the film's animal characters.

The seventh-grade "Exploring Arts" class took a field trip to the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, in San Marino on Thursday.

Generations of school children in California have been taught something of the role played by Spanish Franciscan priest Junípero Serra (1713 - 1784)

The old Mulberry Pond, a fixture at the La Cañada Flintridge botanical gardens since at least the 1940s when it was part of the estate of newspaper publisher E. Manchester Boddy, has been completely drained.
