Greedy Goats back at Wilson Park for spring clearing


The Greedy Goats of NWA are scheduled to return to Fayetteville’s Wilson Park next week for another season of invasive plant clearing.

The goats are brought in a few times each year to eat honeysuckle, privet, poison ivy and other invasive vegetation as part of the parks department’s efforts to manage overgrown areas of the park. The goats will work from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. beginning Tuesday, April 23 through Sunday, April 27, according to a city news release.

The community is invited to watch the animals at work on the south side of the park, near Louise Avenue. Those who miss them on this visit will have another opportunity in July and October.
