OTTAWA COUNTY, MI (WHTC) -- The Ottawa County Parks Department is working to clear several invasive species, including one novel approach.  A pilot program using goat herds to eat the invasive species will begin in May.  The goats will be placed at three county properties: Riverside, Burr Oak and Eastmanville Bayou parks.  The Parks Department is also looking for human help in pulling garlic mustard, spotted knapweed and help with native landscaping.  Find out more by visiting http://miottawa.org/parks
