About The Documentary:
Produced by the BLM and featuring numerous BLM employees, this 65 minute film chronicles the history of America’s wild horses and burros and how the BLM came to manage and protect them on public lands throughout the West. It also demonstrates our efforts to be more transparent in our management of the Wild Horse and Burro Program. This is our story, told candidly and straightforwardly by our employees. The public lands of the Western United States are diverse, ruggedly beautiful and majestic - as are the horses and burros that live there. These animals are born with the colors of the land upon them. The browns, blacks, reds, blues, dapple grays, and snowy whites all reflect nature's paint-brush. And it is the BLM's responsibility to preserve and protect these healthy herds of wild, free-roaming horses and burros as components of the public lands.
The Series:
The M Street Live! Series is offered on a regular basis to provide BLM staff information from program managers and the Bureau’s top leadership on emerging programs, policies, and initiatives and as a means of sharing the successes of field offices in implementing BLM’s multiple use mission.
Target Audience:
This telecast is intended for BLM employees only.
