At Lindsay’s special day of programming we are delving INSIDE animals; What do they eat? What do their bones look like? What’s on the inside of a porcupine’s quill?
And watch Lord Richard, our turkey vulture, devour the meat off a a skull! Enjoy our afternoon Wildlife Photography which will feature real-animal X-Rays! Also learn how single use plastics get into animals but don’t get out. This special day will also host a release of Monarch Butterflies, find out what goes on Inside the chrysalis?

Although Vitamin Shoppe closed in downtown Walnut Creek this spring, the multi billion dollar vitamin and nutritional supplement market is still booming. Do you take any vitamins/nutritional supplements or do you believe they have no effect? I take vitamin D and L. reuteri probiotics. I feel good but maybe it’s just a placebo effect?

Late last year we saw the progress of the new Chase bank building on Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette and as you can see the brick facade, floor-to-ceiling windows and signage is up so it shouldn’t be much longer before they open…
