BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. — Row, row, row your goats up to the ridge this weekend, as the Butte County Fire Safe Council hosts the Paradise Grazing Festival on Saturday, March 25.
The festival, going on its second year, is a family affair showing locals how the average barnyard animals are a crucial element in wildfire mitigation.
The event will be held at Terry Ashe Recreation Center and feature a petting zoo for kids, food vendors, music and drinks.
“What we found is brush sure grows back quickly, and the animals are able to get out there and eat it at a much less expensive rate than sending human hands out with saws,” said Fire Safe Council Executive Director Calli-Jane West. “We hope that small landowners and big land owners can learn about this opportunity and have some fun at the same time.”
The event is free, and runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
