The Riverside Park Conservancy says it will be making an announcement on Thursday, and the announcement of the announcement makes it pretty clear what it will be.
Earth Day plans? We’ll be at Times Square making an important announcement. 11AM, 47th & Broadway this Thursday. @NY1 @CBSNewYork @PIX11News @fox5ny pic.twitter.com/dpxrhSzgkT

The goats are back. Two years ago, Riverside Park imported goats from upstate to chomp the weeds in a section of the park, and it looks like they’ll be back this year. The goats were a big hit, drawing crowds and getting the job done in record time — plus they don’t ask for much in the way of compensation.
Stupid goats, taking good jobs away from people. 😉
After all we’ve been through in 2020, somehow this means SO much this year. SO looking forward to seeing these creatures again in Riverside Park.
This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time!!
Can’t wait to see the little guys again.
I hope they bring back Cheech. He was my favorite….and of course Chong too.:)
There once was a lassey
Her name was sweet Massey
She was a ranger in Riverside Park
Her friends Bella and Buckle
Replied with a chuckle
When she had an idea on a lark
Chalupa and Skittles
Both named after victuals
Inspired her to call out, “hark!”
“Let’s feast on these weeds,
Fill our tummies’ needs
Chow down from dawn to dark
“We’ll call it ‘vegetation management’
Or ‘poison ivy banishment’
We’ll really have made our mark
“But really we’ll just be eating,
Listening to birds sing and dogs bark
“They’ll think we’re so clever
We’ll make the land better
The best eaters of Riverside Park”
This is becoming the Conservancy’s goat-to solution, it seems.
Welcome back goats! Goat get those weeds!
“Topic of the week” (haiku)
great white owl sightings
rescuing a parrots travail
next foraging goats
I’m so delighted!!
I could not find a single goat last time around and searched all over the park. I shall try again. Nancy Goat
Wonderful for the neighborhood
The much awaited return of Billy Goat Gruff. Knew him well. I may have dated his brother. There was a resemblance.
Those goats are the GOAT!
