Goat Walk in Thurmond

September 30, 2018 @ 3:00 pm5:00 pm

Image may contain: text

Come join Active SWV and National Park Service Rangers as we take a walk through the historic town of Thurmond and try to catch a glimpse of the now famous Thurmond Goats.

The New River Gorge National River brought in the goats to combat invasive species in the town of Thurmond that are becoming a problem for the natural flora and fauna of our region.

The Thurmond Goats made the trip here all the way from Green Goats, of Rhinebeck, New York and given the mission of eating their way to restoring the balance for native WV plants to flourish once again.

The Thurmond Goats are a mixture of breed with different backgrounds from retired dairy goats to 4H raised goats but most importantly they are hungry goats. So come out and join us Sunday September 30th from 3-5pm to check out the progress they have made so far.

For more information about other fun and educational Active SWV programs check out our events calendar at or if you have an idea for leading walks like this, email [email protected] to become a Community Captain today.
