SUMMIT, NJ - Environmentally-friendly cult heroes in the 07901, Larry Cihanek’s ‘green goats’ will return to Reeves-Reed Arboretum (RRA) October 11. Back to once-again clear the famed Daffodil Bowl because, in the words of RRA Executive Director Frank Juliano, "Goats eat all day,” the goats provide an eco-sensitive process that supplants the need for months of hard, hand labor.

As has been the case, visitors can -- for $25 -- sponsor a goat and help support the Arboretum’s “green goats initiative” by visiting

Celebrate Fall Festival - October 23, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
