Just sharing a last minute opportunity that popped up. We have been invited to a BLM wild horse gather in Pioche, NV TOMORROW (12-8-18). We will be meeting in the science building parking lot at 4:15 a.m. It is an hour and a half drive to the town of Pioche. We will meet the BLM crew there and then drive to the gather site. This will be an all day trip. We should be back to Cedar City by 8:00 p.m.
We have reserved one university SUV so we can carpool (for free). You are welcome to bring a personal vehicle but it MUST have 4-wheel drive. The drive to the gather site will be on muddy/snowy two-track roads. You will need to bring a lunch and your own water. You will also need to dress warm! There is snow on the ground and we will be out in the flat away from town all day. It is recommended to bring a lawn chair, sunglasses and sun screen.
If you plan to attend please let Sadie know by this evening can make sure we have enough seats. This is a really neat opportunity for everyone. The Ely NV BLM office (who is conducting this gather) is looking to expand both their range and wild horse programs in the near future. This would be an awesome networking opportunity for those interested in that line of work, or for those who want to learn more about it. Let Sadie know if you have any questions.
Take a study break and come enjoy some fresh air. Hope to see you there!
