8/25: Daniel Sheehan
The purpose of this program is to playfully provide information about raising chickens at one’s home. Fun will be had through storytelling and the physical presence of chickens in the museum’s courtyard. It will be geared towards the urban resident but will provide information and anecdotes applicable to all.Daniel Sheehan

Free with museum admission.
