BLM Will Lead Public Tour in Twin Peaks Herd Management Area


The Bureau of Land Management will lead a public tour through part of the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area in northeast California on Friday, July 23.

The tour will leave at 9 a.m. from the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Dr. in Susanville and return by about 3 p.m.  Reservations are not required.

Those interested in participating must provide their own four-wheel-drive vehicles suitable for rocky terrain, lunches and water.

“This is the second tour to provide opportunities for people to learn more about the landscape and land uses in Twin Peaks HMA,” said Nancy Haug, manager of the BLM’s Northern California District.

The BLM yesterday announced a decision to gather excess wild horses from the herd management area that straddles the California-Nevada border northeast of Susanville. The roundup, planned for August and September, will return the wild herds to their appropriate management levels in accordance with the Wild and Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act.
