TOMORROW is a big day – the park will hold a virtual public scoping meeting as they state: “The meeting will start with a brief presentation by NPS staff followed by a Q&A session with a panel of NPS staff and subject matter experts.”
The meeting starts at 6 pm MST on 1/12/2023. You need to have Microsoft teams to access the meeting. There is also a dial in option. You can get all of the details on this meeting here: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/MeetingNotices.cfm?projectID=105110
Please make sure that you attend this meeting. While we all would prefer a good old fashioned “Town Hall” meeting where the park actually FACED the public in person and answered the questions that we all have – this is what they are offering so we have to do our best to make sure there is a strong presence at this meeting.
Now that we know what TOMORROW’s plan is but as Aaron Burr said: “Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today.”
We have 20 DAYS left in this public comment period. We have TWENTY DAYS for you to use your voice to speak up for the wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home!
Have you sent your comments to the park? Remember – NO MATTER WHAT CALLS TO ACTION you are answering – the BIGGEST CALL TO ACTION happens when you leave your comment at this link: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?parkID=167&projectID=105110&documentID=125324
Not sure what to comment? We have a recording of our presentation from 1/8/2023 that discusses this process and how to comment here: https://chwha.org/2023/01/08/1-8-2023-zoom-webinar/
There are several other things you can also do to help these horses. We have our calls to action all listed here: https://chwha.org/2023/01/06/25-days/ REMEMBER – EVERY LETTER COUNTS!
The next couple of days are busy for us with back-to-back meetings almost every day as we continue to fight for the freedom of this herd from every angle we can think of! We are hoping to have some additional information to share with everyone in the next couple of days.
Thank you for your support and have a GREAT day!
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
