4th Annual Herding of Goats off Roan Mountain

Back in May I posted a blog about the Baa-tany Goat Project seeking volunteers to help oversee the goats while they consumed the vegetation that threatens to overgrow the grassy balds at Roan Mountain. The project will need help again next month when they herd the goats off the mountain before cold weather arrives. September 14th is the likely date for the operation, but if weather conditions appear favorable, they may push that date up to September 21st. If interested, please click here.

Below is a good video that shows how the project and herding works:

So if you’re a volunteer in this operation, does that make you a goatboy or goatgirl?
