An amazing thing happened this week. One of the visiting goats browsing invasive plants at the forest edge gave birth to triplets! All three were named lifetime members, and the Arboretum has adopted one of the kids. Once she has grown a bit, the baby (at left with Facilities Maintenance Coordinator Allison Yates) will live at the Arboretum full time, the first goat in the Arboretum's own herd of grazers. Stop by the nursery to see this adorable newborn!
