Big Bear Valley, CA – The Advisory Commission for the Big Bear Valley Recreation and Park District—which, at present, includes Don Pletcher, Kathryn Poole, Gloria Rose, Bob Ybarra and, as of April, Helen Stearns—convenes for their monthly meeting this evening at 5pm at the Big Bear Senior Center. This evening’s meeting is scheduled to include administrative updates on Proposition 84 (as it relates to Paradise Park and the Moonridge Animal Park) and the Sugarloaf skatepark renovation. The agenda also includes appointment of two commissioners to serve on the Zoo Collaborative. Per zoo curator Debbie Richardson’s report on the Moonridge Animal Park, which is celebrating its 50th year, there is a new veterinarian on site, as well as many new baby animals, which include five baby raccoons, three baby opossums, a young coyote, two young ravens, several baby rabbits and some baby birds.
Update: Due to lack of a quorum, the Commission will not meet today. Their next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 20.
