Grazing at the Parks

Visitors to various Placer County parks and open spaces may encounter sheep, goats or cattle grazing throughout the area. Sheep and goats are being used for vegetation management to improve habitat conditions for native plants and animals and to help prevent or minimize the effects of wildfires. For your safety:

  • Do not cross into fenced or penned areas
  • Do not pet, touch or feed grazing animals
  • Do not touch fencing, it may be electrified to contain animals
  • Dogs must be on leash at all times and under owners' direct control
