YOUTH OUTDOOR SAFARI DAY: Kids can pet an African lion, learn how to call quail, get rock-climbing lessons, catch a catfish, paint a duck decoy, shoot BB guns, long bows, .22s and shotguns and take place in a variety of outdoor activities all in one place at the annual Youth Outdoor Safari Day. The July 9 event is free for kids, with only a small fee for other family members to offset the cost of lunch. Sponsored by local chapters of Safari Club International, and supported by a host of conservation and outdoor groups, the event is held in Prado Basin at Mike Raahauge's Shooting Enterprises facility. For more details and directions, call Raahauge's at (951) 735-7981. The lion is stuffed, by the way.
