Okay this is cheesy, but I still adore my school teachers. They each taught me something different and useful, such as: how to make a bird feeder out of a pine cone, that 1+1=2, george elliot’s old grandmother rode a pig home yesterday spells geography, and playing Oregon Trail counts as learning.
So I’m very happy to report that starting today, the California Academy of Sciences is offering free admission to its heroes:
WE SALUTE OUR HEROES
From February 1 through March 15, 2010, the Academy will offer free admission to military personnel, firefighters, police officers, and teachers, in honor of their service to our communities and country. To participate, individuals must show proof of occupation and a valid ID at the ticket window.
Help spread the word!
Remember: This discount applies to one individual admission only and cannot be combined with other offers. Also, the discount can not be processed online or over the telephone — just show your documentation at the ticket window when you arrive.
Costumes aren’t required.
