A group of Californians has come up with a unique way to possibly help prevent wildfires in the state.
How you ask?
By doing the very modern thing of turning to crowd sourcing!
The residents of Nevada City, in the Sierra Nevada, have kicked off a "Goat Fund Me" in an effort to raise money to bring in a herd of the animals to clear dry brush from the land.
So far $13,000 of the $30,000 goal has been reached since the campaign launched late last year.
Nevada City officials say they would need $500 to $1,500 to book a herd of goats per acre.
The funds raised will go directly to the City of Nevada City, which is located just 47 miles from Paradise, where the deadly Camp Fire broke out in November.
