Newburg, WI – It could be the new Netflix series, ‘Goats on an island in Newburg.’
It’s a true story. You can drive down Main Street in Newburg, turn into Newburg Fireman’s Park and as you’re going down the driveway look east.
Yup, that’s really a goat in the tree and 139 of his friends on a little patch of land in the middle of the Milwaukee River.
It’s free entertainment. The goats are actually working with the Bureau of Land Management to rid the area of buckthorn, poison ivy, and other invasive species.
On a history note: Remember when Lac Lawrann shipped in goats to tackle their invasive species? Click HERE to read the story from 2019.
