General Land Office recreated by BLM
at Cheyenne Frontier Days
The Wild Horse Gulch at Cheyenne Frontier Days will once again be the site of the Bureau of Land Management Wyoming State Office re-enactment of the General Land Office.
The General Land Office will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., July 18-26 and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27. BLM staff will be on hand all 10 days to provide information on the role of public land mineral development in meeting the nation’s energy needs and managing the land for multiple uses. Information will also be available on public land recreation and wild horse adoptions.
On Wednesday and Thursday, former BLM specialist, Rob Nurre will take a step back in time to share the history of the General Land Office in Wyoming and how it evolved into what is now the Bureau of Land Management.
In addition, one wild horse will be onsite and will be offered for adoption by silent bid, with the winning bidders being announced at the end of Cheyenne Frontier Days. Wild horse specialists will be able to answer any questions about adopting a wild horse.
This event is free and open to visitors of all ages. The Wild Horse Gulch is located on the east grounds of Frontier Park between the Indian Village and Old West Museum. For more information contact the BLM Wyoming State Office at (307) 775-6103.
