The Montreal Botanical Garden is welcoming some very cute (and woolly) guests over the next several weeks.
Ten sheep have a temporary new home at the Garden.
The Botanical Garden is collaborating with Laboratoire d’agriculture urbaine (AU/LAB) on the “Biquette à Montréal” project.
This herd of sheep is part of an “eco-grazing” experiment and flock to different green spaces and parks around the city.
The mobile sheep initiative is part of a larger research project of how to control invasive plants at the Botanical Garden. It’s seen as an environmentally friendly way of maintaining urban green spaces in the city.
Visitors can come see the five ewes and their lambs up close from 9 am to 7 pm until July 2 at Jardin botanique near the Leslie Hancock Garden.
