The Garfield Goats The Garfield Goats
Select Weeks through October
Hours: All Conservatory hours
Where: City Garden
Cost: Free!

For one week a month this summer, we are hosting Sani, Salvi, and Gracie, three local goats who are happy to help us out by browsing on our prairie grass. People and goats have been living side-by-side for over 10,000 years, and today’s city dwellers are starting to realize the benefits. Come visit our goat friends to see an urban pasture at work in our big backyard prairie area. Please note goats will not be on display during inclement weather. Look for a sign in the lobby or call the front desk at 312-746-5100 before your visit.

The Goats Are Scheduled to Visit on the Following Dates:

• Saturday, July 7 through Friday, July 13

• Saturday, August 4 through Friday August 10

• Saturday, September 8 through Friday, September 14

• Saturday, October 6 through Friday, October 12
