A sure sign of spring: the Farm Babies are back at the Minnesota Zoo.
The annual event with piglets, goats, chicks, llamas, and more is taking a hybrid approach this year due to COVID-19.
Starting Thursday, the virtual Farm Babies event kicks off, with videos, photos, games, zookeeper talks, live webcams of the goat and sheep barn, crafts and more are available on the Apple Valley zoo's website (here).
People will also have the chance to see all the cuteness in person at the Family Farm starting April 9. Advanced tickets are limited for the event (you can reserve them online here).
The Minnesota Zoo this year will also work to highlight "forgotten farm babies" — pollinators like butterflies and bees, and discuss their importance to a healthy ecosystem and productive food system.
The Farm Babies event runs through Sunday, May 16.
