BLM's Wild Horse Program Solicits Ideas, Input at Workshop

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public participation in an interactive workshop to brainstorm possible strategies for the increased comfort of wild horses and burros at the organization's Palomino Valley National Wild Horse and Burro Center (PVC) preparation and adoption facility.

The workshop will be held at the Reno City Council Chamber in Reno, Nev., on Aug. 6 from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. Participants should plan on attending the full workshop, which will involve presentations, discussion, and brainstorming on several items. Information and constructive input from the workshop will be considered by the BLM for providing for increased comfort for the animals at the PVC facility.

Additionally, tours of the PVC facility will be conducted on Aug. 6, prior to the workshop from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., for 30 minutes starting on the half hour. The visits will be group walking tours of this outdoor working facility over dirt and uneven ground, so proper footwear is advisable. The PVC is located at 15780 Pyramid Hwy. (State Rte. 445), in Reno.

In response to requests from the public, the workshop will offer a webinar option for remote participation. While Internet-based participation is an option, the quality and consistency of the technology cannot be guaranteed. Participants are encouraged to attend in person, if possible. For those using the webinar, please be prepared for the possibility of technical difficulties. The BLM would appreciate feedback from online attendees to improve this option in the future.

Participants are asked to RVSP for the workshop and PVC tour, either online or by calling the BLM at 866/468-7826. For additional information and meeting materials, visit
