[Notes:AP][Notes:Athens, Ga.]((SOT-MICHELLE PACERICK, UGA JUNIOR))WELL, I PARKED MY CAR AT HULL STREET DECK, WALKED OUT SAW SOME GOATS AND REALLY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK. WALKED UP THERE AND LOOKED AT MY FRIEND AND WE'RE BOTH LOOKING AT EACH OTHER _ WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE GOATS DOING HERE. PEERED IN, IT SMELLED KIND OF BAD BUT AFTER READING THE SIGN I MUST AGREE IT'S A GREAT IDEA AND I'M EXCITED TO SEE THE CREEK. ((SOT-ZACH RICHARDSON, PROGRAM DEVELOPER GRADUATE STUDENT))I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT ALL THAT RED TAPE AND UNIVERSITY BUREAUCRATIC STUFF BUT YOU SAY BABY GOATS AND IT'S AMAZING WHAT PEOPLE DO TO MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU.SOME FRIENDS AND I HAD AN OVERGROWN BACKYARD, JOKING, I SUGGESTED WE GET GOATS TO PICK UP OUR LANDSCAPING SLACK AND THEN TWO WEEKS LATER THERE WERE GOATS IN MY JEEP AND HEADED BACK TO THE HOUSE. THE IDEA TOOK OFF. FRIENDS LOVED IT, WE LOVED IT, GOATS DID A FANTASTIC JOB. TOOK IT FROM A JUNGLE TO A PUTTING GREEN IN LIKE A SEASON. ((SOT-ERIC MACDONALD,COLLEGE OF ENVIRONMENT AND DESIGN PROFESSOR))HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY WE INITIALLY STARTED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO EXPERIMENTING WITH SHEEP AT ANOTHER SITE. I WAS INTERESTED IN WHAT ZACH WAS DOING BECAUSE GOATS, WHILE SIMILAR TO SHEEP IN SOME RESPECTS ALSO ARE DIFFERENT. THEY WILL EAT MORE WOODY VEGITATION, THEY WILL BROWSE HIGHER THAN SHEEP, SO IT SEEMED INTERESTING FOR ME TO BEGIN THINKING ABOUT HOW GOATS MIGHT PERFORM PERHAPS DIFFERENTLY OR BETTER IN SOME SITUATIONS THAN SHEEP. ((SOT-KEVIN KIRSCHE, OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY))THERE ARE STUDENTS IN ART THAT ARE ACUTALLY PHOTOGRAPHING THE SITE AND MONITORING THE BEHAVIOR, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE GOATS, THE INTERACTIONS OF PASSERS-BY AND OTHER STUDENTS THAT JUST COME TO ENGAGE WITH THE GOATS TO VIEW AND OBSERVE WHAT'S GOING ON HERE. BUT THEN THEY ALSO LEARNED ABOUT SOME OF THE CHALLENGES OF MANAGING URBAN ECOSYSTEMS AND IMPROVING URBAN WATERSHEDS. SO THE GOATS HAVE OPENED UP AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A BROADER DISCUSSION OF SORT OF URBAN ECOLOGY AND OUR IMPACT AND THE LITTLE THINGS WE CAN DO, INDIVIDUALLY, TO IMPROVE THE ECOSYSTEM IN WHICH WE LIVE.((SOT-TIFFANY EBERHARD, UGA STUDENT))I HAVEN'T HEARD TOO MANY JOKES IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS ABOUT IT. I THINK THE INITIAL RESPONSE WAS KIND OF LIKE, YOU KNOW, WHAT'S GOING ON. BUT I THINK WHEN PEOPLE FIND OUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING IT'S A LITTLE MORE ACCEPTED. ((SOT-ZACH RICHARDSON))IT MAKES ME THINK SOMETHING LIKE THIS WANTS TO BE CONTINUED. I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE THERE'S A NICHE IN THERE SOMEWHERE FOR A SETTING LIKE THIS TO HAVE A CAMPUS GOAT HERDER.
