Working on the Range for Change
WHE is on the road and if you visit our main website you can read other articles at http://WildHorseEducation.org
In addition to all of the in-house work WHE does our founder Laura Leigh recently entered into an agreement to work on a project by project basis with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada. The work involves multiple tasks from the desk like organization of information and writing. Her favorite part of many of these projects is the field work.
Leigh is a bit of a range rat at heart. Recently hitting the “million mile mark” on the road working for our wild ones she has spent a lot of time gathering data that WHE (and other orgs) utilize in advocacy. Working in conjunction with BLM as a volunteer she is helping to build options that take into account as large and accurate a picture as possible to create the best outcomes for management.
“There is so much to do,” said Laura Leigh “Many people forget how many herds we have in the West, particularly in Nevada. It is invigorating to be able to utilize the skills I have obtained in a collaborative fashion. People that know me well know I love a challenge. Public land management is challenging in so many ways. I know we can ‘do better’ as a nation for our wild ones and wild places. Project by project, step by step, I am giving it my best effort to reach those goals.”
Their future depends on us.
