It's a glorious day and the beginning of All Terrain Vehicle Safety Week. There are free courses. The Discovery Cube Los Angeles has two new traveling exhibits. The Big Train Show is in Ontario. This is just sample of the Sunday activities featured on this edition of GAYLE ON THE GO!
ATV Safety Week
Now through June 14th
This weekend is the beginning of All Terrain Vehicle Safety Week. Free training and safety courses are being offered nationwide.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 92 percent of all ATV-related fatalities are the result of warned-against behaviors, such as youth riding on adult-sized ATVs. Take some time during ATV Safety Week and learn about the proper operation of your machine, find out about helmets and other protective gear, and learn ways to dramatically reduce risk for you, your family and friends.
To find a California course near you, take a look at the website www.atvsafety.org or call 1-800-887-2887.
Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog
Discovery Cube Los Angeles
11800 Foothill Boulevard
818 686 2823
Summer starts early at Discovery Cube Los Angeles with the opening of two traveling exhibits. First, there’s Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog
Get ready for a “paws-on” adventure with Emily Elizabeth and the residents of Birdwell Island. Early learners will enjoy exploring and playing in popular places like Emily’s Backyard Theater, Clifford’s Doghouse, T-Bone Beach, and more! Hands-on activities include making music in the Musical Marina, hunting treasures at T-Bone’s Beach, and going on a reading adventure at the Birdwell Island Library where kids can read their favorite Clifford book.
Guests can explore Clifford’s world with activities that promote “Clifford’s Big Ideas” – ten simple life lessons designed to help children navigate their world: Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend, and Help Others.
Second, there’s Animal Grossology, a unique look at the animal kingdom and some of nature’s grossest topics. This interactive exhibit puts a unique spin on blood suckers, slime makers, and vomit munchers to uncover why animals do the yucky things they do.
This hands-on exhibit offers a refreshing look at blood, pellets, vomit, and digestion as well as some of Earth’s slimiest and stinkiest inhabitants. Learn why cows chew cud, how a snail’s slime may help doctors treat cystic fibrosis, or why the dung beetle is considered nature’s original pooper scooper. Guests of all ages will enjoy this interactive exhibit with fun learning games, activities, and animatronics to explore the science of animals.

First Ever Drone Footage of Gray Whales: Mother & Calf
Captain Dave’s Dolphin & Whale Safari
For the first time ever the presence of a gray whale mother has been recorded with not just one but two calves using a drone! Whale watching passengers and crew with Captain Dave’s Dolphin & Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, could not believe what they were seeing.
How rare is one mom with two calves? Captain Dave Anderson reports he has never heard of anyone even seeing a gray whale with two calves. Captain Dave says it is not known if these whales are twins or if one was adopted by the mother. There have been cases of dolphins adopting other dolphin calves of the same or different species into their pod.
