March 28, 2010

Sandra Barrera’s article ‘Ecosystems’ prove it’s a small world after all in the 3/28/10 Sunday Long Beach Press-Telegram identifies a good exhibit to take the kids to go see. The exhibit has eight Zones – each one illustrates a different ecological principle. The Ecosystems exhibit just opened on March 25th. Here’s the Press Release. It is at the California Science Center at 700 Exposition Park Drive in Los Angeles and open from 10 am to 5 pm daily. It is suggested to get reservations for the new exhibit ahead of time.

Ecosystems Info: Admission to Ecosystems exhibits is free; however, to provide a quality guest experience, entry will be regulated with advance reservations which can be acquired online, by phone or in person at the Box Office. A service or convenience fee will apply. There will also be a line for those who do not make an advance reservation. Priority entry to Ecosystems will be available with an IMAX ticket purchase or for Science Center members. For details, visit the California Science Center website at www.californiasciencecenter.org or phone (213) 744-2019.
