Naturalist Nights: Using Goats for Habitat Restoration on Public Lands
February 24 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 amFree
Humans have been working with goats for thousands of years. Now land managers and others are learning how to use goats to help restore and protect wildlife habitats. Learn from local Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wildlife biologist Hilary Boyd how the agency is using goats to increase plant diversity at Sutey Ranch, reduce noxious weeds after the Lake Christine Fire, and improve a variety of conditions for wildlife and livestock in other parts of the Roaring Fork Valley.
Hilary has been a wildlife biologist at the BLM’s Colorado River Valley Field Office for over seven years, and a resident of the area for over 15 years. She enjoys planning habitat projects that benefit greater sage-grouse, mule deer, elk, and other wildlife species.
This is a free event. Additional information will be sent in your confirmation email.
Unable to join us in Carbondale? Hilary will also be presenting in Aspen on Thursday, February 24 at ACES Hallam Lake Nature Preserve. Presentations will also be available to watch on Grassroots TV and YouTube afterwards.
