Baylor University's Harry and Anna Jeanes Discovery Center, the centerpiece of the Sue and Frank Mayborn Natural Science and Cultural History Museum Complex, has received a $250,000 grant from The Meadows Foundation of Dallas. The gift will be used in general support of the $18 million project that will provide a world of learning comparable to nationally acclaimed museums.
Baylor University's Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village will host "From Fleece to Fabric" from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 17. Visitors to the village can watch sheep shearing demonstrations, help clean and process the fleece, card wool, learn how to spin and weave a bookmark. Throughout the day, there will be demonstrations of wool dying and weaving.
