A brigade of goats will once again roam the hills of Berkeley Lab, eating grasses to reduce fire hazards in the summer and fall. They are arriving earlier than usual due to heavy rains and growth over the winter. The herd will start in the East Canyon area above Buildng 85 then work clockwise around the Lab perimeter. They will stay for about four to five weeks. Employees are reminded that the fences erected around the Lab to pen the goats are electrically charged with low voltage and should not be touched. Warning signs will be posted.
