We will host a herd of goats in Riverside Park starting on May 21, 2019. They will roam a two-acre area — within a fenced enclosure — located between approximately 119th to 125th Streets, feasting all the while.
Throughout the season, the goats will continuously consume the weeds all the way down to the roots, which stunts the plants’ normal growth trajectory by making them start all over — only to be eaten again. After a few months, the plants’ ability to grow will have been weakened, and perhaps eliminated altogether.
The Conservancy team looks forward to getting to know the goats. Please contact us for ways to get involved.
