Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park consists of 515 acres of hills and dramatic, heavily wooded ravines with occasional clearings of prairie and old field. This varied topography and landscape creates an unusual variety of vegetation and habitats. Look for grouse, ermine, cottontail rabbits, deer and a number of bird species, including the pileated woodpecker.
Goats are being used to set back garlic mustard throughout the park. The location of the goats will be updated below. The Goats are moving fast, so we would recommend seeing them soon as possible (estimated leaving date of May 22). Please note the "kids" sometimes go in and out of the fence due to their size, if you see one please gently put them back in without touching the fence.
Goats are between Paddock V and S, they are very hard to see! Click on the link below for a map with units. Updated 5/13/21.
