Would you like to get up close to the City's goat grazing specialists? The public is invited to a meet and greet with the goats at Alexander Wilderness Park on Saturday, August 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
After a successful pilot program last fall, the goats have returned to target invasive weeds in two of our river valley parks. The goats have been in the parks since June, although they took a three week break to let the weeds grow back before another round of grazing began August 12.
This event is an opportunity for the public to see the goats, ask questions and learn more about the targeted grazing project.
The Parks Natural Resource Coordinator from the City of Lethbridge will be on site to answer questions.
Directions and instructions
To access Alexander Wilderness Park, enter the road beside 647 Marie Van Haarlem Cres N. and drive to the parking lot at the end of the road (see map below). Parking is limited so motorists may need to park on the side of the road in a way that does not block incoming and outgoing traffic.
Sturdy shoes are recommended as the goat pen will be west of the parking lot.
