Location: McClure Center for Education, Farm Barn
Fee: Member: $5; Non-member: $6 (cash and checks only)

Join us anytime between 10AM and 1PM to celebrate sheep and all that they provide us.  Watch a sheep get its yearly haircut!  After the sheep is shorn,  you’ll have the opportunity to skirt, wash, and card its fleece — a process in which wool becomes ready to be turned into warm, cozy clothing and blankets.  We’ll be spinning wool into yarn bracelets, felting, and a few mother sheep and their lambs will be visiting the Children’s Farmyard area for you to meet!

Registration Details: 

No registration required. Please register upon arrival in the McClure Education Center located in the Farm Barn.  Walk-ins welcome!
