BLM to hold public workshop concerning wild horses in the Fish Springs area

By ThisIsReno

blm_logoCarson City, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District, Sierra Front Field Office will hold a public workshop on Wednesday, July 17, from 6-8 p.m., at the Fish Springs Volunteer Fire Station to discuss public suggestions on how to manage wild horses located several miles outside the Pine Nut Herd Management Area (HMA) south of Carson City. These wild horses have migrated about 10 miles outside the HMA to the Fish Springs area and are impacting private property.

“The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the alternatives identified in the June meeting we held and which will offer the best management options,” said Leon Thomas, Sierra Front Field Manager.  “In order to have a well-rounded discussion, we are hoping all interested people will attend.”

Fish Springs is located about three miles southeast of Gardnerville, Nev. The Fish Springs volunteer Fire Station is located at 2149 Fish Springs Road in Gardnerville, Nev.  Because of limited accommodations at the fire station, bringing a chair is suggested.
