California Living Museum Paint/Sculpt-Out
Saturday, October 14 at 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Spend a gorgeous fall day plein air painting California native plants and animals followed by a group critique at the famous California Living Museum. All are welcome.
Since 1983, the California Living Museum (CALM) has grown from a grassroots effort to a beloved, accredited zoological facility that brings California wildlife and conservation to the forefront of the Kern County community. Acting as both a wildlife rehabilitation center and zoo, CALM exists to educate the public on the amazing flora and fauna that thrives in California.
One of the only zoological facilities operated by a County Office of Education, CALM works hand in hand with the Kern County Superintendent of Schools to educate students and adults alike; currently hosting over 20,000 students annually through our doors on school field trips. In collaboration with the CALM Foundation, we inspire guests to look at wildlife with new perspectives and intentions. It is our hope that we motivate each visitor to help make a personal commitment to the betterment of our planet.
