Along with a crew of goats, Wilsonville community members did their part to improve local parks during WERK Week last week. In that time, volunteers removed invasive species and hauled barkdust at Boones Ferry Park, Murase Plaza, River Rox Park, Memorial Park, Sofia Park and Palermo Park. Then, on Saturday, community members had the chance to pet goats from WestSide Goat Girl, which the city contracted with to remove invasive blackberry bushes. The city's Parks and Recreation website states that employing the goats "eliminates the need to use loud machinery and pesticides and aligns with the City's Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan."
