Public Invited to Tour BLM Wild Horse Holding Facility


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is offering public tours of the Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility for visitors and locals to enjoy between National High School Finals Rodeo events.

From July 14 through 18, the facility will conduct tours and adoptions from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. No appointment is necessary for the one-hour tour to view facility operations and wild horses gathered from various herd management areas throughout Wyoming.

To get to the facility from I-80, take Elk Street Exit 104 and go north one mile; turn right onto Lionkol Road and follow for a half mile.

For more information about the BLM Wyoming Wild Horse and Burro Program or the facility, please 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.
