April 23, 2018 – West Bend, WI – Members of the West Bend Sunrise Rotary and West Bend Noon Rotary put the business end of a shovel to use on Sunday planting trees at Lac Lawrann.
The event was all part of Earth Day.
Coming up later this week the folks at Lac Lawrann will be considering a new way to remove the invasive species buckthorn.
One of the growing trends is to bring in goats.
According to an article in The Growler, “Not only do goats love the taste of buckthorn and burdock, but these plants also tend to grow at a goat’s eye level, right where they browse for a snack.”
There’s still quite a bit of work to do if goats are brought to the local nature conservancy. They would not be allowed to freely roam; fencing would have to be put in place and then adjusted to spread out the grazing territory.
