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 on Governor's Island and grazing in Hammock Grove. The island's gardeners 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 issues.
Mollie McGinnis, director of operations planning for the Trust for Governors Island, joined Cheddar News to talk about the summer project.
