Trees Atlanta and the Chastain Park Conservancy will host “Breakfast with the Sheep” on Friday, June 21, from 9 to 10 a.m.
Kudzu will be on the menu for the sheep, who are being brought in again to kick off a summer of invasive plant eating around Atlanta. Other refreshments will be provided for the humans.
Trees Atlanta has hired a herd of more than 100 hungry sheep to tackle acres of kudzu that grow in Atlanta’s green spaces, and the herd’s first stop is Chastain Park. Residents are invited to join the sheep for breakfast, feed the sheep, participate in arts and crafts, and learn why invasive plant removal is vital to a healthy urban forest.
Attendees should gather at the Chastain Park Conservancy, 4001 Powers Ferry Drive. Limited parking is available in lots and along the roadway leading to the Conservancy offices. Carpooling is encouraged. The event is free, but please RSVP to www.treesatlanta.org.
