No photos yet, but this is the best thing in my e-mail this morning, from the University of Arkansas Office of Sustainability:

A herd of goats from Greedy Goats of Northwest Arkansas are devouring invasive plants along a trail on the U of A campus.

What: Greedy Goats

When: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 25 (unless it’s raining)

Where: Oak Ridge Trail, a section near the Garland Avenue entrance.

Removing invasive plants such as bush honeysuckle and Chinese privet gives native species a chance to recolonize the area, returning it to its natural state and supporting the local ecosystem.

Goats don't work in the rain?
