Turns out it’s going to snow in Santa Barbara — a lot. Eighty tons of the white fluff is predicted to fall on the S.B. Zoo for area kidlets (ages 4-12) to sled on and frolic in. The ice crystals are being created to celebrate the zoo’s snow leopards, Everett and Zoe, who came to the S.B. Zoo as part of a global conservation accord. In addition to the humans, some critters will get the cold white stuff added to their enclosures, including the elephants, meerkats, capybaras, Asian small-clawed otters, and (of course) the snow leopards. Other kid fun includes a climbing wall, face painting, and electric ride-on animals. Sunday, December 8, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. S.B. Zoo, 500 Niños Drive. For more information, call 962-5339 or visit sbzoo.org.
