Trees Atlanta, the City of East Point, and Keep East Point Beautiful have teamed up with Get Your Goat Rentals to bring a herd of goats into Connally Nature Park to graze on a variety of evergreen invasive plant species like English ivy and Chinese privet.

This 35-acre forest is home to the state champion white oak as well as healthy colonies of ground-dwelling ephemeral plants like the critically endangered Pink Lady Slipper orchid.

The goats are a natural way to keep nuisance plants in check, and open up space for native Piedmont plants like the Pink Lady Slipper to grow and spread. Come out and learn why the goats are here and how they are improving this greenspace.

No registration is needed for this free event – just show up!
