BLM to Extend Special Fee Incentive for Wild Horse Adoption


In response to public interest, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office announced today that it will continue to offer mares for adoption at the special incentive fee of $25 each through May 31.

Three wild horse mares at the Rock Springs Corrals.

 
The special incentive adoption rate is available only at the Wild Horse Facility on Lionkol Road in Rock Springs, Wyo. Potential adopters can view the mares by appointment only from 8:00 a.m. until 4: 00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Potential adopters must submit a completed adoption application prior to adopting one of the mares. Applications are available at the Rock Springs Field Office at 280 Highway 191 North or on the web at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses.html.

The mares were gathered from the Salt Wells, White Mountain, Little Colorado, Divide Basin and Adobe Town herd management areas in southwest Wyoming. They are sure-footed and well adapted to Wyoming conditions.

For more information about the special incentive adoption or adoptions in general, call the Wild Horse program at 307-352-0302, or visit www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses.html.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
