Goats return to work for BurnsvilleOctober, 2020 -

Goats have returned for the third year of the prescribed grazing pilot project at Civic Center Park. The goal of the project is to control buckthorn and to restore oak savanna habitat. The goats are expected to be on-site for about a week.

Goat Grazing in Burnsville

Land management is challenging, especially when dealing with invasive plants like common buckthorn, and it is important to have a variety of land management tools available for use. Prescribed grazing with goats is one of the potential tools that the City is testing in the battle against buckthorn and other unwanted vegetation.

The City has initiated a pilot project at Civic Center Park to test the effectiveness of goat grazing as a habitat management tool. As that pilot project progresses, the City may also consider using goats in other parks where goat grazing is expected to be a useful tool. As of 2019, goats are also being utilized for buckthorn management at Rudy Kraemer Nature Preserve.
