Two herds of goats and sheep, totalling 800 head, arrived in Sleepy Hollow in 2018 as part of a unique, collaborative project resulting from the 2016 SHFPD Wildfire Hazard and Wildland Urban Interface Area Assessment, which identified key locations for fuel reduction to reduce the impact of wildfires in Sleepy Hollow and neighboring communities. By partnering with adjacent local landowners, including Rocking H Ranch, Triple-C Ranch, San Domenico School, and Marin County Open Space District (MCOSD), the multi-agency project aims to reduce hazardous fuels on more than 200 acres of high-risk grass woodlands in and around Sleepy Hollow.
