You loved it last year- and you'll love it again this year. Montreal's Maisonneuve park will once again have roaming sheep on its premises over the summer. That's right, they're baaaah-ck!

As a way to upkeep its grass without using damaging methods that include fossil fuels, Montreal's Maisonneuve park will be collaborating with Biquette, an eco-grazing advocacy organization, for the sixth year in a row.

From May 28 to September 10, sheep from the Biquette organization will be seen roaming Maisonneuve park every day between 9am and 7pm, come rain or shine. 

When they're not chomping away at the grass, the sheep will be safely enclosed in a pen on the premises. "The sheep will be accompanied by shepherds to ensure security and answer any questions you may have," said Biquette in a post announcing the return of their sheep this summer in Montreal.

But that's not all...

Biquette will also have a henhouse, a bee hive, a mushroom farm, and more installations as a mission to teach Montrealers the importance of biodiversity. 

Mark your calendars Montreal, it all starts May 28! Will you be there?
