San Jose community briefs for the week of March 29

Fitness funding
The Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department, with the help of District 10 Councilmember Johnny Khamis, secured a hefty award for local fitness fanatics. Kaiser Permanente recently granted $12,000 for the city to invest in exercise equipment for adults and seniors at six local community centers.
On a jag
San Jose residents who enjoy fuzzy felines can celebrate the jaguar at Happy Hollow Park and Zoo on April 6. Regular park admission that day will include activities and talks from leading conservationists, and art inspired by the zoo’s own cats will be on sale, with half the proceeds going to wild jaguar conservation groups.
Nursery break-ins
Our City Forest Community Nursery is appealing to residents for donations following three break-ins at the nursery over the past month in which valuable equipment was stolen. The nursery is requesting monetary donations to go toward replacement tools or donations of the tools themselves. Donations can be made at http://www.ourcityforest.org/nursery.
