With Earth Day looming (it's Saturday, April 22), there's a whole slew of activities this week that can give families a deeper appreciation of the natural world around them. These include free days at gardens, such as South Coast Botanic and Descanso, and planetarium shows at UCLA and Santa Monica College.
Also on tap for the week is the OC Fair Imaginology event, with its focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math); now in its 38th year, the event allows youths to showcase their talents in individual and group competitions. It also features hands-on activities, displays, workshops, career advice, and other activities for families.
We know a great weeknight dinner deal this week, too, that makes it easier to enjoy all this entertainment.
