Governor's Island Gets a New Herd of Sheep Employees

Governor's Island has hired a fluffy crew to help curb its invasive plant species problem.

This summer, five sheep from Albany, New York will be living n Governor's Island and grazing in Hammock Grove. The island's gardners had spent years trying to weed out non-native plants that were preventing future growth, but officials are hopeful that the sheep will be able to complete the task in less time and allow staff to focus on other tasks.

Mollie McGinnis, director of operations planning for the Trust for Governors Island, joined Cheddar News to talk about the summer project.
