Super Saturday is Coming...

Saturday, February 1st, is our next Community Day.  Join us as we plant our new Rose Garden and add more fruit trees to The Orchard.  This Saturday should be a great day to get all of the new plants in. 

Bring gloves and wear layers. The weather remains cool but dry.

If you'd rather help out with the animals, we always have lots of clean up tasks.  Feel free to help out where you can; we appreciate all the help we get from friends and neighbors.

The gates will be open from 8:00 am until noon.  
Hope to see you here!

Meet Fiona

This is Fiona.  Fiona is one of two goats we have here at the Christensen Science Center.  She is just over four years old and has lived most of her life as part of the Science Center family.  She was donated to the science center at a very young age and has become one of the favorites of the Center.

Fiona is an American Lamancha goat.  Lamancha goats are normally bred as dairy goats because they have such rich butter fat in their milk.  One characteristic of the breed is the small elfin-size ears.

Another common characteristic of these goats is their friendly nature and eagerness to be in the middle of it all. Fiona is no exception.  Right from the beginning, Fiona was inquisitive by nature.  She rushes forward to peer at every guest, investigate every noise, and she even tries to find her way out of her enclosure at every opportunity!

But what endears Fiona to visitors and caretakers alike is her sweet disposition and pet-like nature.

If you haven't been by lately to visit,  stop by soon; Fiona misses you.
