Friday afternoon a herd of 450 goats and sheep moved from the county landfill near Poplar Beach parking lot to the historic Railroad Right-of-Way Conservation Easement in Half Moon Bay.
The public was invited to come to the corner of Poplar Street and Railroad Avenue at 4pm to watch a set of Border Collies work the herd onto the easement.
The herd will then slowly make their way north along Railroad Avenue over the next 3–5 days, kicking off Coastside Land Trust's habitat restoration efforts on the property for 2013-2014.
You can also visit the herd this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday along Railroad Avenue between Poplar Street and Garcia Avenue, look for CLT's docent table near the grazing site.
You are invitedto roll up your sleeves and continue the habitat restoration on Saturday, August 17, from 10am - Noon. Work will focus on removing invasive and ornamental plants the goats and sheep leave behind. Meet at the corner of Poplar Street and Railroad Avenue.
The "Get Your Goat" campaign continues at the Coastside Land Trust office and online. For $10 you can sponsor a goat or sheep and take home a personalized notecard with a description of the restoration work.
