For 24 days — 5-29 August 2022 — a team of goats and their guard donkey from Allegheny Goatscape are back in Frick Park eating invasive plants.
One of their targets is invasive mile-a-minute (Persicaria perfoliata). It has thorns all over it …
.. but the goats eat it anyway. The challenge will be: Can they eat it fast enough?
Learn how mile-a-minute got to North America in the article below. Pennsylvania is involved!
