Hello and Happy Saturday!
THANK YOU to everyone who joined us last night for our Horse Talk. Isn’t our attorney, Matt Arnold from Eubanks & Associates PLLC awesome?! We think so too! Thank you again Matt for making time in your busy schedule to come and answer our questions! If you missed this Horse Talk, we did upload the video to our YouTube channel this morning: https://youtu.be/QERohSyjpnY
We are also working on scheduling some additional Horse Talks in the next couple of weeks with people who will also give some insights into Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s Draft EA. We spoke with Dr. Ross MacPhee not too long ago and several people have commented on how helpful his talk was for them to formulate some comments. You can view Ross’s talk here: https://youtu.be/tNbQf3fBf6k?si=G5Gp7cw3WtYtf6L9
We will be giving a similar presentation next Friday – October 13, 2023, when our friend at Equine Collaborative International will be hosting us in a zoom meeting. This event is also FREE, but you do need to email them at email@example.com and ask to join the zoom!
Our friend Heather at Save Our Wild Horses will be hosting us on October 20, 2023, for a Zoom presentation as well. This talk is also FREE but Heather asks that you email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the link to the meeting!
I will be making slight changes to these two presentations to reflect questions, comments as well as answers that Matt gave last night. You guys all raised a lot of great questions! Thank you again for your participation!
We are hoping through these different Zoom talks that we continue to reach people and get as many people to comment during this public comment period.
Next week, I will start a series of blog posts directed toward how and what to comment. Be sure to check back! We also have a few more media interviews set up. We will share them as they are released.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park is holding their virtual public meeting on October 10, 2023. They will give a presentation and then answer questions. These meetings are usually “drop dead” one-hour meetings. There is information on the Park’s planning website on how to attend this virtual meeting.
The most important thing you can do is COMMENT! You can read the Draft EA and enter your comments on the Park’s planning website:
We DID send in a formal request to Superintendent Richman yesterday asking for an extension to the current public comment period. We will update you as soon as she responds.
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates will also have some NEW Calls to Action for you next week.
Remember, you can subscribe to our website from the homepage to be notified when we update our page.
