Greedy Goats to Visit Wilson Park in July
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The Greedy Goats are coming back to Wilson Park, Tuesday July 9 through Saturday, July 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily, barring rain. Greedy Goats of Northwest Arkansas adopted Wilson Park in 2015 and began clearing invasive honeysuckle, privet, and other aggressive plants along Louise Avenue. The owners and their goats volunteer to help the Parks Department educate the public and eliminate non-native invasive vegetation.
The community is invited to visit the furry Adopt-A-Park volunteers; their next will be in October.
To find out more about how you can volunteer in City parks and trails and help in the City’s efforts to combat invasive plant species, please contact Kristina Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org.
You learn about common invasive species and suggested native alternatives in an educational packet written by City staff and community stakeholders.
