The San Joaquin County Historical Museum at Micke Grove Regional Park in Lodi hopes to entice visitors with a new Critter Corral that will provide encounters with live farm animals on weekends through Sept. 1, according to The Record newspaper in Stockton.
Education and Visitor Services Manager Robin Wood said the corral will include different animals each day. There will be ponies, sheep, goats, bunnies and others the next two months.
The Historical Museum is an 18-acre area of eight exhibits that celebrate San Joaquin County's rich history.
This summer, the exhibit "Wherever There's a Fight: A History of Civil Liberties in California" is on display. There is also a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution titled "The Way We Worked" from Oct. 6 to Nov. 16.
