You know spring is finally here when the sheep get their new 'dos. Today is Sheep-Shearing Day
at the zoo, and we couldn't be more thrilled. In addition to all the wool-whacking (sheep produce about eight pounds of the stuff every year), experts will demonstrate the proper way to shear a sheep, just in case you want to try it at home. Weavers and spinners will also make wearable items from all that wool. Plus, the newly naked animals will be available for feeding and petting. Ewe!
Sat., April 22, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
