Sponsor a goat and help the Welty Center

Print Article

Photo provided Pictured is "Goldie," one of 40 goats available to be sponsored while they work to restore Big Hill Prairie outside the Welty Environmental Center.

The community is invited to help the Welty Environmental Center, 1201 Big Hill Court, Beloit, with their ongoing project to restore the grounds around Big Hill Park by sponsoring a goat.

Forty goats are hard at work grazing invasives so the park can become an oak savanna like it was 200 years ago.

It costs $5 for one goat for one day, $70 covers the two weeks or sponsors can name a goat for $100. Those who are interested can meet the entire goat crew online at www.weltycenter.org or come out to the park to visit.

Everyone is invited to "Graze with the Goats" from noon - 3 p.m. Sunday and learn more about the prairie restoration project. There will be food and ice cream available for purchase as well as goat games.

The goats will be working at the park until they leave on July 22.
