Saturday, September 25th marked the second annual Science Day at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Several community partners as well as zoo staff and volunteers had booths set up from 10am - 3pm with hands-on activities ranging from figuring out the anatomy of a starfish to guess which droppings belong to which animal to discovering the Solar System and many more in between. And there are many fascinating animals, birds, reptiles, and more to see and learn about around the zoo, and some even came out of their enclosures to mingle with the public.
On a late Tuesday evening, going to the library usually isn't the first thing on my list of things to do, but on September 21 2010, that's exactly what a large group of community members from Kihei did. The Kihei Public Library hosted “A Night With The Stars”. The events center around the opportunity to use LCOGT's 2.0 meter Faulkes Telescope North at the summit of Haleakalā.
