The Greeley Museums is celebrating spring with young animals at the annual, Baby Animal Days event at the Centennial Village. From April 7 20, cuddly farm animals will be visiting the Village, such as goats, horses, pigs, sheep, ponies, rabbits, chicks and ducklings.

Volunteers are stationed at the animal pens and stalls to answer questions and ensure the safety of the visitors and animals. Visitors will be allowed to touch the animals based on instructions.
