G.O.A.T. for New York’s park-cleaning goat Award
A New York-based organization Thursday called the G.O.A.T. Organized a special award ceremony. Five goats were honored with the award at the event. These goats clean up the non-native plants in the park. The Riverside Park Conservancy holds its first G.O.A.T. Namely, the Great Of All Time Awards were held Thursday at River Side Park in Manhattan. The award was awarded to five goats from the local herds grazing the park.
The organization says the five goats were selected on a voting basis. Since the goats were brought in the spring season, thousands of people have been evaluating their performance. The winning goats were presented with a medal and edible flowers.
In this park, 24 goats eat non-native plants such as Japanese knotweed, wineberry, poison ivy, and English ivy. Riverside Park covers 60 acres of forested area.
