Greedy Goats return to Wilson Park to clear honeysuckle and other invasive plants


The Greedy Goats of NWA are back at Fayetteville’s Wilson Park this week to help clear invasive species from the area.

The goats are used to eat honeysuckle, privet, and other invasive vegetation from the south side of the park. They’ll work from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily through Saturday, July 14.

The community is invited to watch the animals at work.

The Parks and Recreation Department’s partnership with Greedy Goats is one of several projects to emerge after the city’s invasive species ordinance was adopted in 2015.

For more information on the project, contact Kristina Jones at the Parks and Recreation Department, at 479-444-3467.
