Animal Place, 3448 Laguna Creek Trail, Vacaville, will hold a farm tour and book signing on Saturday (May 31), noon to 3:30 p.m. There's a $10 fee. Visitors 10 years of age and older will meet Nicholas the calf, Aiden the sheep, Flo the goat and scores of other farm animals.
After the tour, Mark Hawthorne, author of "Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism," and Erin Williams and Margo DeMello, authors of "Why Animals Matter: The Case for Animal Protection," will read from their books and share experiences advocating for the protection of farm animals.
And it's a great opportunity to talk about the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, a measure that will be on November's ballot that will provide some basic and critically-needed protections to millions of farm animals crammed into abusive cages on California factory farms.
Registration and pre-payment are required for all tours. Register and get more details at http://www.animalplace.org or call 707-449-4814.
