We're using goats to manage invasive species. That's right, goats. They eat everything, even garlic mustard, honeysuckle, autumn olive ... you name it. Our partnership is working with Allegheny GoatScape to restore portions of Frick Park to natural woodlands. We'll follow up with planting native trees and shrubs, offering educational programs, and tracking our success by monitoring birds. Are you a birder and want to help? Mosey on over to our ongoing projects to find out how!
