Spring is in full swing! That means it’s time for the Zoo’s sheep to get their annual haircuts. Watch our woolly flock go from shaggy to shorn during live wool-processing demos, and enjoy crafts activities.
You Can do What with Wool?
Have your ever wondered how your favorite sweater is made or how it gets that vibrant hue? Expert wool processor Peter Sepe will enlighten visitors by showing various spinning and dyeing techniques.
Fantastic Farm Facts
Education stations will highlight facts about the zoo’s many domestic animals, including pigs, goats, llamas, and of course, the sheep.
Arts & Crafts
Kids can also make their very own farm-tastic sheep-themed crafts.
