Goat Grazing Returns

Beginning May 5, we will begin conducting a vegetation control project with 250–400 goats in the open space and preserve areas. Goats provide an innovative, environmentally sensitive way to eliminate fire hazards such as grass by keeping open space vegetation under control.

During the project a perimeter fence will surround the goats and companion dogs will also be used.  Please do not attempt to approach the goats or companion dogs. The animals will be accompanied by a caretaker who will be on site 24 hours per day.

Additional goat herds may be added and goats will change locations throughout the open space as they finish eating the vegetation in one location and are needed in another.
