This month, a herd of goats will be managing unwanted plants like autumn olive at the preserve - by eating them. Their climbing ability allows them to reach vines and stems in otherwise hard-to-reach places. The goats crush what they eat, so seeds are not viable. An electric fence will be used to keep the goats from wandering and eating vegetation the preserve wants to keep.

On Saturday, June 18th, there will be an opportunity to come and meet and greet the goats and see them in action as natural resource management tools. We will have a presentation in the Education Annex beginning at 10 a.m. Light refreshments will be provided. After the presentation, you can walk to the pond and get an up close and personal opportunity to "meet the goats."

Please help us plan with an RSVP if you plan to attend.
