Abby & Ringo, Six-banded Armadillos

Abby & Ringo, Six-banded Armadillos

Abby and Ringo are two very energetic Six-banded Armadillos. One of their favorite activities is running around the Reptile House Lawn with groups of children sprinting behind them. While on excursions around the lawn they have a talent for finding all of the mud puddles and showing off how fast they can dig while looking for worms. When taking a break from running around they often cuddle together with Abby sleeping on her back and Ringo using Abby’s stomach as a pillow... Read More

7-year moratorium on Natomas construction ends Tuesday


A seven year moratorium on new construction in the City of Natomas officially ends Tuesday.

The city's department on community development will start accepting and issuing building permits for new Natomas homes and businesses for the first time since 2008. This comes after a revised flood map was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Permits are expected to be approved for construction of more than a thousand new homes, with new permits for businesses expected to follow soon.

"So we can put bathrooms in our parks, we can build hotels, we can build businesses, we can add on to our schools, we can finish neighborhoods that were started with homes," Sacramento Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby said.

In the next 18 months Ashby said you can expect to see a new hotel, a new elder care facility, doctors' offices and much-needed new school construction.

Railroad Museum Celebrates “Diesels & Dads” On Father’s Day Weekend - June 20 & 21

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are gearing up to celebrate “Diesels and Dads” on Father’s Day weekend – June 20 & 21, 2015 -- by operating two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives as part of the popular weekend excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad.  Departing hourly from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the brightly painted diesels -- Western Pacific No. 913 and Southern Pacific “Daylight” No. 6051 -- will pull the excursion trains both Saturday and Sunday on Father’s Day weekend.   The eye-catching and classic streamlined locomotives are representative of the so-called “First Generation” of diesel-electric locomotives which replaced steam engines all across America during the 1940s and 1950s.
