BLM Offering Public Tour in Twin Peaks Herd Management Area


Natural resource management issues on public lands in the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) will be discussed in public tour through the area northeast of Susanville to be hosted by the Bureau of Land Management on Monday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
 
BLM natural resource specialists will lead the outing to provide information on resource management in the region that supports wild horses and burros, myriad wildlife species and permitted domestic livestock grazing.
 
The tour will depart at 10 a.m. from the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Dr., Susanville.  Participants must provide their own transportation in four-wheel-drive vehicle and their own lunches.
 
The BLM is proposing to remove excess wild horses and burros from the herd management area to bring the population to its appropriate management level, as required by the federal Wild and Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act.
 
An environmental assessment on the proposed gather has been released for public review and comment.  Written comments are due by June 18. The EA is available at www.blm.gov/ca/eaglelake.
 
“We hope this tour will provide anyone interested with the chance to learn more about the herd management area as they prepare comments on the environmental assessment,” said Dennis Benson, associate manager for the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office.
