Sprucing Up the Farm

Saturday June 22, 9 a.m.-noon
Agricultural Heritage Center, 8348 Ute Hwy, Longmont
Come help get the Agricultural Heritage Center ready for one of our biggest events of the summer, Barnyard Critter Day! We will be doing several jobs to make sure the farm is all ready for hundreds of visitors and demonstrators. Some projects will include weeding the demonstration field, dusting and cleaning the beautifully restored historic house, tidying up the barnyard critter pens, and much more! Many hands make light work and we need your help to get it done! This project is suitable for all ages, however, children under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
