Herders will unload goats in the Issaquah Highlands on Saturday morning, and the homeowners association needs volunteer wranglers to guide the rented ruminants from the trailer to the forage area.
The goats will be unloaded at about 11 a.m. Saturday near 28th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Julep Street, and then start munching invasive plants and unruly grasses. Temporary fences will separate wranglers and ruminants during the brief jaunt. No, the goats don’t bite.
Contact Russ Ayers, Issaquah Highlands Community Association landscape manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org, to learn more.
On the heels — or hooves, rather — of a successful goat landscaping effort last summer, the association rented ruminant landscapers again. Herds from Vashon Island and Eastern Washington chomped across highlands hillsides last summer.
