The local Galloping Goat Pumpkin Patch was hired to use their goats in the northern section of the Willow Creek Rio Rancho Bosque area for non-native species (Kocia weed) removal.

The goats will begin their work on Sept. 27 and could be used for four weeks.

Galloping Goat says it’s a more ‘green’ approach to clearing weeds. They say a natural removal can even be beneficial in the long-run.
