Don’t miss Island Alpaca’s annual open house on Saturday, April 25, from 10 am to 4 pm. The event features more than 80 alpacas on hand for shearing and public viewing, plus education and demonstrations. Learn about the alpaca lifestyle, alpaca nutrition, and herd management. Check out spinning and fiber demonstrations, and watch expert shearers as they work their clippers through the alpacas’ fleece, or just relax on the picnic tables in the viewing area. Admission is $5, and refreshments will be available. For additional information, visit
