Pointe-Claire will host a group of six sheep as part of an eco-grazing project.
The sheep will be housed in a temporary enclosure and will spend their days grazing on grass, to help maintain the park in a completely natural manner.
A series of educational activities is planned during these six weeks, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.:
June 14: Knitting with sheep – all levels
June 21: Bilingual story hour, followed by a craft (ages 3-6)
June 28: Art creation for families
July 5: Family picnic, followed by a children’s show (in French)
July 12 : Yoga with sheep – adults (bring your own yoga mat)
July 19: Shearing and spinning demonstration
Feed can be purchased every Saturday for $0.25.
A shepherd will be at the park at all times to watch over the flock.
In case of rain, storms, and heat waves, the sheep will be placed in a shelter and will therefore not be in the park, and activities will take place at the Noël-Legault Community Centre, located at 245 Du Bord-du-Lac–Lakeshore Road.
