For the second year, the Arnold Arboretum has turned to goats to beat back the weeds running roughshod over parts of its Peters Hill side. This week, three goats were unleashed in a fenced off overgrown area just up the path from the entrance at South and Bussey streets.
An arboretum worker says even more goats are on the way.
When we visited the goats this afternoon, one was hard at work eating weeds, while the other two lazed in the shade:
H/t Rachel Lerner for alerting us to the goats in our midst.
