recpark-thumb1The Moonridge Animal Park has had many animals brought in to the zoo for rehabilitation, and some of those recent feathered and furry additions include two young hawks, two infant opossums, two infant raccoons and two young grey foxes, some of which will ultimately be returned to the wild. The Moonridge Animal Park also has a new catfish exhibit, as well as a new habitat for adult opossums in the nearly completed nocturnal building. The zoo report, as well as updates on other facilities overseen by the Big Bear Valley Recreation and Park District, will be addressed in this evening’s meeting of Rec and Park’s Advisory Commission, which meets for their monthly meeting today at 5pm at the Big Bear Senior Center.

Update: As of this afternoon, this meeting has been canceled. The Advisory Commission’s next meeting will be August 18 at 5pm at the Big Bear Senior Center.
