On Mom's Day Weekend, visit Forest Home Farms
This month's Fun On the Farm day at Forest Home Farms is all about mom.
A special event is held there on the second Saturday of each month. This Saturday's event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature a chance to write a letter to mom to say why she is special, and deliver it with a white carnation. Also in honor of moms, visitors can take the "Are You My Mother?" quiz to see if they can match pictures of baby animals with the right mother.
Also on Saturday, there will be tours of the historic Glass House Museum at 10 and 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. And there will be tours of Forest Home Farms Historic Park, including the Tractor Museum, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tours are $5, or $8 for both. Children 2 and younger can tour for free. The park is at 19953 San Ramon Valley Blvd. For details, visit www.sanramon.ca.gov.forest or call 925-973-3284.
