Grant to fund ovine ‘weed-eaters’ at Helen Putnam Park


By Hannah Beausang, Argus-Courier

Sonoma County officials earlier this month met their goal in a campaign to raise $50,000 to match a grant from an anonymous supporter of Helen Putnam Regional Park.

Parkgoers can see their donations in action in coming weeks as a Petaluma-based shepherd will bring a flock of four-legged weed-eaters to help combat poison oak, boost soil health and quell fire danger in one of the first of a series of projects to be funded by the $100,000 gift.
