OVA has hired a herd of sheep again this year to eat away the tall grass in Oakmont open areas around the East Rec Center and along Stone Bridge Road near the Community Garden.
The herd began work near the East Rec on Friday, June 1, with a move to the west side to follow.
Dog owners are urged to keep their dogs away from where the sheep are working as their barking could excite Shepherd Mario’s dog Lat, who is trained to protect the sheep. Photos by Julie Kiil.
