Greedy Goats Are Back at Wilson Park!
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Greedy Goats are back at Wilson Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily, Thursday, July 12 through Saturday, July 14. Greedy Goats of Northwest Arkansas adopted Wilson Park in 2015 and began clearing invasive honeysuckle, privet, and other aggressive plants on the south side of the park – helping Parks Department staff with the overall effort to eliminate invasive vegetation in Fayetteville’s park and trail areas.
The community is invited to come watch the hooved volunteers chomp away on the south side of Wilson Park, along Louise Avenue. As Adopt-A-Park volunteers, Greedy Goats visit Wilson Park three times per year, and will return one more time in the fall.
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

written by City staff and community stakeholders.
