    EGGStraordinary EGGSibit: A Fascinating Collection of Bird Eggs from Ventura County
  California Oil Museum, 1001 E. Main Street, Santa Paula CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
Which came first? You may not be able to answer that question after you visit, but you will be amazed at the collection of eggs shown in this exhibit at the California Oil Museum. Borrowed from the vast collection at the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology, this exhibit focuses on Ventura County bird eggs and the habitat in which they are hatched. Explore the unique beauty of the eggs while you learn about the fascinating world of birds. Opening day will have exciting egg activities for the entire family, such as how to blow out an egg, and professional bird watchers that will inspire you to become a bird enthusiast! The California Oil Museum is located at 1001 E. Main Street. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, $1 for students 6-17, free to members and children 5 and under. The Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10am to 4pm. For more information find us at www.oilmuseum.net or call 805-933-0076. So what is it about eggs and nests that called out to both professional and amateur ornithologists alike, inspiring them to spend large amounts of time in the field collecting the materials and endless hours organizing them in museums, despite the risk of going into debt, alienating their friends and family, and even losing their lives? The answers lie not only in the nature of old-time bird collectors, people who loved to amass rare, unique, and common specimens alike, but also in the nature of early ecologists, people with the passion for the natural world who found answers to questions about natural history and evolution in the shapes, colors, patterns, clutch sizes, and distributions of the eggs and nests of the world’s birds. The answers lie, too, in the nature of the eggs and nests themselves- beautiful, fragile, unique, useful, and marvelous to behold!

It's alive! Mel Brooks' Broadway hit based on his hilarious 1974 movie comedy reunites him with the creative team that turned The Producers into a smash.

He's aided, supposedly, by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, and an eccentric and frightening housekeeper, Frau Blucher. This Ventura County Premier production is bound to induce monstrous amounts of laughter with catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN plays April 19 - May 25, Fri & Sat at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $24 Adults, $20 Seniors & Students and $18 Children and can be reserved by calling (805) 583-7900.   ($18.00 - $24.00)
