Come early to explore wild animals, get busy with craft activities and grab a bite before the show
The County of Los Angeles, Department of Parks & Recreation is pleased to bring its Nature in Your Backyard program back to the Ford's entryway gardens before every Big World Fun show. This program educates families about the plants and animals that are native to southern California. The Natural Areas Division uses native live animal ambassadors such as birds of prey, mammals, reptiles and amphibians to teach conservation and preservation of the important and rapidly shrinking wildlife habitats in Los Angeles County.
Preshow craft activities are provided by Go As If, a production company that develops content and produces all-ages events that foster community and spread intercultural appreciation. For descriptions, click each event below.
