Mass Audubon’s Sheep Shearing Open House falls on  Saturday, April 2 and is a great way to learn about the wool process from sheep to mittens!


Sheep grazing led to the development of many meadows on the sanctuary, and Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary’s current team of munchers help us maintain open habitat for wildlife. Come and meet Aurora, Monarch, Guinness and the rest of the flock. Learn how sheep are sheared and how those fleeces eventually become warm hats and mittens. All ages welcome.
