The board will meet using Zoom video conferencing. The meeting will be streamed both days on the BLM’s website from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mountain Time.
A more detailed agenda will be released in advance of the meeting.
The nine-member, all-volunteer advisory board typically meets twice per year. It provides recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service on the management of wild horses and burros from the perspective of different interest groups. The board does not control BLM or USFS policy.
The Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Agriculture select board members based on education, training or experience that would enable them to represent a particular interest group.
RTF biologist Celeste Carlisle is in her second year on the board, representing wild horse and burro advocates.
Three public comment periods are part of the agenda on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who wish to give public comment must be registered by Sept. 17.
Speakers and those who cannot attend the meeting can submit written comments to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks before the meeting with the subject line “Advisory Board Comment.”
