There are lots of things to see and do in Boulder, but a trip to the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History is always worth making, as there is invariably something good going on.

This is definitely the case on April 26th, when guests at Boulder hotels will be able to meet two alpacas in the fountain area between 14:00 and 17:00 MDT.

Audiences of all ages will be able to meet and greet the animals for free while learning about how the fibers on their bodies are grown and processed to become luxurious scarves and sweaters.

The alpacas in question are of the huacaya variety and usually live on a small farm in south-west Weld County with their family, but they will be making the trip to the museum as a special treat for visitors.

Guests at the Millennium Harvest House Boulder will be able to get there in 20 minutes on foot and they are sure to have a great afternoon petting these intelligent and usually gentle creatures.
