THE GREAT OUTDOORS— Malibu Creek State Park’s Campfire Program featured a live show-and-tell brought in by The Reptile Family of Thousand Oaks on July 11. Frogs, snakes, lizards and a 35- year- old tortoise entertained the kids, and everyone could pet the animals. The night ended with a marshmallow roast around the campfire.
