2011-01-14 10:40:22 Hi. I see that you speak Farsi. I'm wondering if you have any interest in helping with a kids' Persian culture day? It's called "Under the Persian Oak." You can see the link at "http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu/calendar.aspx". I'm an Arboretum Naturalist. We'd love any help we can get!
