From Sheep to Sweater and Everything in Between
It’s a sure sign of spring—time to shear the sheep!
Come join the fun on March 26, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at Woolapalooza 2011! Bask in the beauty of Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm, the perfect setting to delight in all things sheep. Festival highlights include Drumlin Farm’s new spring babies, sheep shearing and sheepherding demonstrations, hands-on activities for all ages, and all natural, locally grown and harvested Drumlin Farm food. Local fiber artisans will offer demonstrations and sell their handmade products. Follow the “Sheep-to-Sweater Interpretive Trail” to learn how fleece on a sheep becomes the warm woolen sweater you wear.
Admission to the festival is $8 for adult Mass Audubon members, $10 for adult nonmembers, $6 for children members, and $8 for children nonmembers; children under 2 are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 781-259-2206. There will also be tickets available at the door.
Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, Mass Audubon’s only working educational farm, practices sustainable farming that supports native habitat.
