The wildlife at Anaheim Hills' Oak Canyon Nature Center will grow substantially this weekend, but these critters are more likely to sport tennies and T's than feathers or fur. On Sunday, the 58-acre wildlife sanctuary will be the site of the seventh annual Children's Discovery Faire, a free showcase of local youth programs that is expected to draw hundreds of children and adults to the park.
