Weed Whackers @ Half Moon Bay, July 27

_DSC1530
Wednesday, July 27, the goats are coming to Half Moon Bay. At 9 a.m. the herd of 200 goats and 200 sheep will be herded by dogs eastward on Poplar Street from Poplar Beach. The herd will have just finished grazing the landfill south of Poplar Street, and will be moving to dine on their second course at the Railroad Right-of-Way. Their consumption of invasive plants helps to preserve the natural habitat in the area. Please join us at the corner of Railroad Avenue and Poplar Street for this exciting annual event. Light refreshments will be provided.

Would you help support these excellent restoration workers by sponsoring a goat, or perhaps even two? The herd costs $2,500, plus CLT's expenses. This year CLT has a donor who is matching dollar for dollar all donations in support of the goats. If 15 generous goat supporters donate $50 each, we'll have the funds to pay for them. Please consider giving more if you can, as not all goat supporters can give the full $50. Click here to donate online. Or mail a check to our address listed below with "goats" in the memo line.
