GRAND JUNCTION COLO. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on a preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Range. The EA analyzes how the BLM Grand Junction Field Office can manage the Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Range for a multi-year period. Public comments will be accepted through June 15, 2024.

The Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Range has an Appropriate Management Level (AML) of 90-150 horses. The BLM conducted a census earlier this year and estimated the population of the area to be approximately 202, which is above AML. The preliminary EA analyzes the use of gathers and fertility control to manage the herd.

“The Grand Junction Field Office thanks the public for their interest in managing the Little Book Cliffs herd” said Upper Colorado River District Manager, Greg Larson, “Our top priority is to manage for healthy horses on healthy rangelands.”
