This fall, the Chew Crew, a small herd of goats, returns to continue its work clearing invasive plants from the banks of Tanyard Creek. We will start our walk at the Tanyard Creek experimental restoration site at the foot of Baxter Street. Our onsite hosts, EECP faculty member Dr. Eric MacDonald, CED grad student Zach Richardson, and UGA law graduate Mikey Salter, will describe the goals of the project and its progress thus far as we interact with the goats.
Then we will proceed to the Founders Garden House for a potluck dinner. Participants are encouraged to bring goat-themed food to share. Over dinner, our discussion will focus on the ecological, legal, and ethical ramifications of prescribed grazing as an urban restoration tool.
