Free Friday Flick

Did you know that an elephant seal can hold its breath for 80 minutes? Or that twice a year they set out on a roundtrip migration across the North Pacific Ocean, traveling farther in a year than any other mammal on Earth? When they do come to rest, it is on the shores of Northern and Central California. On Friday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. the Wildling Museum (2374 Alamo Pintado Ave., Los Olivos) will screen A Seal’s Life: The Story of the Northern Elephant Seal, a National Geographic film that documents the seals during their “haul-out” at Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery near San Simeon each winter. Admission is free; popcorn, cookies, water, and soft drinks provided. Wine is available for sale. For more, call 688-1082 or visit
