Did you know that the City of Calgary has gotten goats involved in the city’s weed control plan again this year? They are living just off of Memorial Drive, near Centre Street this year, and will be grazing McHugh Bluff until August 15th. If you can’t make it out to see them this year, don’t worry, they have a 4 year contract. There is a great article with lots of great videos of the goats here: https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/goats-back-in-calgary-to-remove-weeds-invasive-species
