Goats at the Arboretum

May 3 2022 from 7:00 am May 12 2022 from 6:30 pm

May 3 – 12
7 am – dusk

The beloved goats from Rent-A-Ruminant Texas will be back at the Arboretum this spring helping us mow down invasive species! This year you can find the goats chowing down on thorny dewberry and small saplings in the 2.3 acre area inside the 610 Parking Loop. Read below for some helpful tips for viewing the goats at work!

Goat Viewing Tips

  • Park at the 610 Entrance for easy access
  • Stay on sidewalks and trails to avoid traffic
  • Keep children and dogs away from the fence – it is electrified to keep predators like coyotes out of the area
  • Do not try to feed or pet the goats
  • Do take lots of photos – if you post them on social media, tag @houstonarboretum so we can see them!
