Heifer Village Hosts "Spring Fling" in LR This Weekend

Fox 16's Steve Adamson shows us some of the things you'll see there.
Downtown Little Rock's Heifer Village hosts “Spring Fling” for families on Saturday.

Winter is ending, and families can enjoy a variety of spring activities at the Murphy Keller Education Center (Heifer Village).

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., take photos with animals from Heifer Ranch such as sheep and chickens, and learn how livestock can change lives for farmers in need. Kids can plant seeds to take home and explore the education garden, or “bee” an explorer to learn how bees can help gardens grow and provide income for families. Come see what spring discoveries you might find throughout the wetlands and have some fun with our interactive games.

Spring Break continues at Heifer Village March 18th– 23rd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with more Spring Fling activities and crafts. Kids can create their own “sheep” craft to take home and learn how animals provide materials like wool that can be made into marketable goods – gloves, scarves, blankets. Visitors can also learn about a simple technology used in the developing world to stop erosion, called an A-Frame. And participants will get to see a bee hive, try on beekeeping suits and create pollination mobiles to take home while learning about the benefits of bees in the garden.

Spring Fling day activities are free and reservations are not required.
