February 2016 is off to a good start this week with free fro-yo at Menchies. Who knew that there was such a thing as “National Frozen Yogurt Day"? Not this consumer of delectable frozen treats. If only the artisanal ice cream shoppes would follow suit, we would want for nothing.
Though groundhogs are few and far between in this part of the woods, they can be found if you know where to look. In any case, our kids celebrate so many holidays, why leave out this one? Pretend City leads the way with an interactive Groundhog Day celebration. You and your shadow should head to Irvine and check out this fascinating rodent, also known as the whistlepig.
The rest of the country is covered in snow, but clear skies are forecast for Los Angeles this week. Embrace the good fortune and hike over to the Madrona Marsh nature preserve in Torrance for a kid-friendly walk in the wetlands.
There are many more ways to explore our local flora and fauna on Mommy Poppins’ Daily Events Calendar and February GoList. We'll start you off with our 5 favorites below.
