The goats are back to their old stomping grounds.

Goats will be grazing on invasive vines and knotweed in West Penn Park beginning Friday, July 29. The grazing is expected to last three weeks. Once the area is clear, student volunteers from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh will continue to clear woodier vegetation from the site to prep it for tree planting.

Weather, climate change and the urban forest

Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - 10:20am

The weather in Pittsburgh is never consistent. From Snowmageden to the Polar Vortex, our winters over the last six years have provided us with a new vocabulary. While summer weather hasn't provided any new words, it has been just as unpredictable: from summers where we had to do virtually no watering of trees to summers where we couldn't water all of them, we've had some drastically different climates. Weather is the state of the atmosphere at a specific place and time, and climate is the weather conditions in an area in general or over a long period.
