Reindeer on the Way: Snow Will Welcome Them to San Francisco

Categories: Events, Science

Taking a holiday from the snow, he's on his way to San Francisco

Just in time for the holidays, reindeer are returning to the California Academy of Sciences. The large, sled-pulling caribou, will get quite the welcome tomorrow morning, when they walk up snow covered steps on their way into the museum.

Of course Santa will be there to greet them and usher them to their reindeer hotel -- an outdoor, fenced area for people to see them close up.

The snowy entrance of Santa's helpers kicks off the annual Academy of Science's "'Tis the Season of Science," which includes exhibits on various reindeer facts (Did you know reindeer see the world in ultra violet light?).

If you want to see the reindeer, sans kids, they'll be hanging out at the museum until Jan. 5, so you can always visit them at one of the Nightlife at the Academy events.
