Nevada City is a California municipality about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento. City officials are worried about wildfires this year, having witnessed the devastating Camp Fire, in nearby Butte County, last year. Total damage was estimated at over $16 billion. The town of Paradise burned. So what’s Nevada City’s preventative action. Goats. In theory, a herd of goats can clear out the underbrush and reduce the risk of a wildfire. Today, I gave to a GoFundMe campaign to help Nevada City bring goats to the forest.
