 A Bighorn Sheep Calf was born over the weekend of 3/25/2017 & 3/26/2017. I was lucky enough to visit the museum right after it was born to watch it jumping around with all its newborn energy! 

 

  

1,200 types of plants can be seen throughout the museum - 56,000 individual specimens are spread out along walkways & within controlled environments.
