The Fishers Parks Dept. is using the new Agripark as an education platform for Fishers youth. The department will offer an animal education series this month. The Agripark is at 11171 Florida Rd.
“We are doing a series all about animal classes, and the first one is all about sheep,” parks director Sarah Sandquist said. “We will have a professional on-site showing how to sheer sheep and talking about what to do with the wool. We will talk a little about how sheep are bred for meat production.”
The event is designed for ages 5 to 10. Cost is $10 per child, and there’s a limit of 25 kids. Registration is required.
“This is the first in the All About Animals series, so keep an eye out for additional ones,” Sandquist said. “We also will talk about horses, cows, chickens, and maybe even ducks (in the future).”
The Agripark’s newest animal is a mallard duck named Henry. So far, the park has been popular and each of the preview days sold out. The park is open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursdays. It is closed Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
