Join the Stamford Nature Center for this fun family festival celebrating the renewal of spring: Meet the latest additions to the Heckscher Farm family, from baby chicks and ducklings to lambs, kids, and more!


You can turn wool into yarn, plus many other hands-on demonstrations. There will be activities for all ages including face painting, crafts, and live music with Jay and Ray. On Sunday, watch our sheep get their annual shearing and learn about what happens with their woolly coats. Additionally, an assortment of local food trucks will be on site, hayride tickets will be available for purchase, and our Museum Galleries will be open, featuring our Powerful yet Fragile: Connecticut’s Waterways photography exhibition.
