Busch Gardens Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful parks in the country. The mountains and rolling hills are a fantastic characteristic of the park, and they also provide a challenge for landscapers. Unless you are a sheep. Busch Gardens Williamsburg uses sheep in a method of landscaping they call “targeted grazing.” Sheeps are placed in specific parts of the park where it is too dangerous for landscapers to go and maintain the grass. The sheep eat the grass and plants from that area, in return maintaining the landscape.
Sheep are perfect for the sloped terrain throughout certain parts of the park and provide a way for the park to maintain its landscapes. The program has been so successful that the park is actually expanding on the idea with more animals.
If you want to catch a glimpse of the grazing sheep, they are located at the bottom of the Rhine River near the bottom of the Verbolten roller coaster.
