BLM Facility Operations Status

With the phased resumption of normal operations in many states and localities around the country, the BLM is working bureau-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. The health, safety, and well-being of the public, employees, volunteers, and partners is paramount as we begin to restore normal operations. We are increasing public access to wild horse and burro off-range adoption and sale facilities on a case-by-case basis while examining and regularly monitoring each facility and service provided to ensure we comply with current public health guidance.

Most facilities are open for business, subject to certain limitations (e.g. modified hours, if by appointment, social distancing requirements, etc.) which can be found on the individual facility pages. With public health in mind, the following facilities remain closed at this time:

  • Facility in Canon City, CO is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Elm Creek, NE is temporarily closed

Details and updates on operations will continue to be posted here and on our social media channels.
