Mission Statement

Sustainable land management and fire risk reduction via goat grazing.

Description

City Grazing adopts retired dairy goats and other goats in need of a new home. We give them a new life as grazing goats. Our goat grazing program fights fires through risk reduction and provides sustainable land management, helping to eradicate invasive plants and support native California flora. We depend on our amazing team of volunteers and fundraisers to provide for the many needs and expenses of caring for 100 goats not covered by our grazing program.
