Canyon View Preserve
We turned 15 goats and 45 ewe lambs onto the Placer Land Trust's Canyon View Preserve in Auburn today. We're using the critters to graze/browse invasive brush, including blackberries and scotch broom. Stay tuned for updates on this project. Believe it or not, sheep do a great job on brush (if they're "trained" to eat it)!
