Antiques and nature flourish in Torrance

February 22, 2013 by  

Students who are home schooled have the opportunity to enjoy a nature class at the Madrona Marsh Nature Center and Preserve.

The facility will teach students about ducks and water birds during this class which consists of a one-hour classroom period and a one hour nature experience on the marsh. The class will be held from 10:00 am to noon on Wednesday, February 27, at the preserve located at 3201 Plaza Del Amo in Torrance.

The program is geared toward ages 6 – 8 years old and is limited to the first 12 students to register. Admission is a $5 donation. Younger siblings are not allowed in the classroom for the first hour but are welcome for the outdoor part of the session. For more information, call (310) 782-3989.

On the same day, antique lovers will enjoy the hunt for old and new treasures during the Antique Street Faire from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Wednesday, February 27, at 1317 Sartori Avenue in the historic section of downtown Torrance.

Over 200 vendors will line the streets selling all manner of antique clothing, furniture, jewelry, tools, and toys. Antique appraisals will be available during the fair, so it may be an excellent opportunity to bring down grandma’s old jewelry and grandpa’s old yard tools to find out how much they are worth today. In addition, the regular shops on the street will also be open during the event.

Banner printing and poster printing are both excellent ways to advertise local community events and to alert visitors to the location – something organizers of both events will no doubt consider.
