BLM WILD HORSE AND BURRO ADVISORY BOARD MEETING and PUBLIC WORKSHOP – scheduled for June 14 & 15, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.
Please attend if you can, this is an important opportunity to speak out for the horses and burros. Please encourage the press to attend as well-this board has done little to represent the public for years but many people will be attending for the horses and burros and it is time to ask the Board to consider the public’s opinions and solutions.

Those submitting comments electronically should include the identifier “WH&B Advisory Board Meeting Comments” in the subject of their message and their name and address in the body of the message.
