Goats leave Congressional Cemetery spic 'n' span

Watch what happens when Congressional Cemetery employs a herd of goats to control invasive vegetation.

Grazing Goats to the Rescue
The Historic Congressional Cemetery decided to take an eco-friendly approach to cleaning up its grounds.

The Association for the Preservation of Historic Congressional Cemetery, a non-profit, partnered with Eco-Goats of Davidsonville, Md., to clear 1.6 acres of land outside the burial grounds.

Over the course of a week, the goats ate their way through the cemetery, eliminating unwanted vegetation while fertilizing the land.

Federal News Radio visited the cemetery when the goats first arrived and right before they left to see just what they could do. Check out their work in this before-and-after photo collage.
