The Conservancy deploys a herd of 300 goats to graze on overgrown weeds. Goats effectively remove invasive weeds including fennel, ice plant and other non-native plants. This method of weeding by goat grazing is considered an environmentally friendly and economically efficient approach for both fuel modification. The goats are the most popular weeders because they make very little noise and leave no trash behind. Since 2009, the goats have been helping the Conservancy clear invasive plants from its lands. Goats can clear an entire acre in a single day, which takes a crew two or three days to accomplish. Their droppings provide natural fertilizer that replenish the top soil.
