Public Observation Opportunities

When can I visit?

Because of the inherent nature of bait and water trapping gathers, the public would not be allowed to view actual gather activities.  It is likely that the capture of the burros will be sporadic with some captured every few days/nights.  However, the BLM plans to hold public site visits by appointment, and will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the public wishing to view the captured burros and observe loading for transport throughout the gather period.

What are the procedures?
