Wild & Wonderful Weeks Ahead

Have you heard that April 14 is "LOOK UP AT THE SKY" Day?

Sky watching is amazing but so is every day in Claremont during April. There are scads of wonderful things to do during Wildflower Week in Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, intriguing booths at Earth Day (April 14 . 8am-1pm), beautiful blooms at the Eclectic Garden Tour (April 14 1-4:30pm), hoppy family fun at the Spring Celebration (April 20 9-11am) -- and oodles more this month!
Okay, I just have to say that it's an EGGstraordinary time of year.
