Notice about Goose Control in East Goshen Township

Please be aware that the Township has begun its goose control program. One of the techniques that the Township uses to control the local goose population is to fire a Pyrotechnic Single Shot Launcher in Township Open Spaces where geese are known to congregate, such as around ponds and wet low-lying areas. This “goose gun” makes a loud burst or siren-like sound that is effective in scaring geese away. However, importantly, it does not contain live ammunition or any projectiles that will harm humans or animals.

If you live near Township Open Space where geese are known to visit, please do not be alarmed if you see Township staff riding on a gator and hear these types of unusual noises over the next several weeks.
