An Urban Grasslands Restoration Project in the Railyard Park

The Railyard Park Conservancy and Quivira Coalition, in partnership with the City of Santa Fe and Horned Locust Goatscaping, present “Graze Days,” a 3-5 year restoration project in the Railyard Park. With the use of grazing sheep and goats, the project aims to restore the Park’s 2.1 acres of native grasslands, while educating the community on the many benefits of prescribed grazing both in working and urban landscapes.  Hoof action, grazing and the recycling of manure nutrients drastically improve soil health in an organic and sustainable way, ensuring that the Park’s drought tolerant landscaping remains a vibrant community oasis.
