- These Adorable Goats Are Helping To Restore Brooklyn’s Last Natural Forest
By John Converse Townsend - Friday Sep 22, 2017
Able to eat around 25 pounds of weeds in a single shift, the goats are freeing Prospect Park of invasive species and clearing the way for park staff to plant more native trees.
When Superstorm Sandy hit New York in 2012, it left millions of people without power and destroyed thousands of homes. The storm also battered Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with tropical-storm-force winds, damaging or felling more than 500 trees. Some of the trees that still stand predate the park, which opened to the public in 1867, making Prospect Park home to the last remaining hardwood forest in the borough.
