LA Arboretum
Another place that has so much to do here is a link to their events. Here are some of my choices for the month:

July 16, 2011 – Hypertufa Workshop – you will make your own light weight planting pot. Strong like concrete, yet lightweight.
There is a Summer Nature Camp for 5-10 year olds. If you are a member there are extended Members only hours.

I hope you find a few things to do this month, enjoy!
