Join us every Saturday for the unique experience of seeing one of our heritage breed sheep or goats on their weekly stroll across campus.
Guests are welcome to greet the animals; and encouraged to ask questions about our living collections.
Only one of the three famous nursery rhymes featuring sheep originated in America. According to The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes, both “Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” and “Little Bo Peep” first appeared in England, and antiquity has clouded their origins. The story is different for “Mary’s Lamb” written by Sarah Josepha Hale—one of the most remarkable women of the 19th century.
