It's in Queens Events Column

Blob fish, elephant shrews, and Chinese salamanders are coming to town! Good thing there's a wide variety of activities for them. If they like exercise, they can enjoy a literary crawl, guided walk, fun run or marathon. If they like music, they can check out opera, recycled chimes, and Bernadette Peters. Or maybe they'll head to IndieCade or a unique market. The world is their oyster.
