Cuddle Up to Lambs

Dec 24, 2019 11:31AM
In January’s chilly post-holiday weeks, when perhaps many of us gravitate to curling up (um, collapsing?) by a fire, ewes are doing the hard work of giving birth to their little bundles of white fluff. The Hopland Research and Extension Center in Hopland expects its lambs to arrive in mid-January. Kids and their parents are invited to visit them on January 11, 10 a.m.–noon. There will be a one-mile stroller- and toddler-friendly walk to see the lambs, followed by sheep-related activities in the center’s Rod Shippey Hall. Participants may bring a packed lunch but are asked to leave their dogs at home. Admission is $8 for adults or $3 for ages 16 and younger. Register for the Meet the Lambs event at
