Rally gathers remarkable and resplendent reptiles

Reptiles: Resilient, remarkable, and resplendent from the tip of their noses to the ends of their tails! There are countless legends and stories about reptiles to be found in every culture, but the stories often say more about us as humans than the animals that star in them. Could a tortoise win a race against a rabbit? And whats the difference between a tortoise and a turtle, or for that matter, a terrapin? Do snakes lay eggs? What do lizards eat, what might eat them, and can they really grow new tails? How do some reptiles change their colors, and why?

Members of the Bay Area Amphibian and Reptile Society (BAARS) will be sharing their amazing array of reptiles and answering your questions at Haywards Sulphur Creek Nature Center on Saturday, July 22. And if you are very quiet and calm, you may be allowed to pet a python!

Celebrating all things Charlie

Since 1979, Charlie Chaplin Days has been celebrated in the Niles district of Fremont. Its origin goes back to 1915, when Charlie Chaplin came to town to work for the Essanay Film Company. During his stay he made five films, including his iconic The Tramp. While he was here, he watched films in the Edison Theater (now our museum building), and discovered his leading lady, Edna Purviance, who answered an advertisement in a San Francisco newspaper for a job to work in motion pictures.

Although Chaplin only made a fraction of the over 350 films produced by Essanay during its time in town from 1912 to 1916, ChaplinÕs name is the most remembered by the general public; that tradition continues one weekend a year in Niles. The museum shows films Chaplin made while in Niles a century ago and also stages activities, including a look-alike contest, while merchants display all things Charlie, and a grand time is had by all! Join us in celebration of all things Charlie
