BLM to Install Shade Structures at Palomino Valley Wild Horse & Burro Center

Posted: Updated:

The Bureau of Land Management's Palomino Valley National Wild Horse and Burro Center will begin testing three different shade options for wild horses and burros over the next two months.

The decision comes after BLM officials met with citizens who were concerned about the animals when the temperature climbs.

The BLM will install the structures as soon as materials arrive at the center on Pyramid Highway, some 20 miles northeast of Reno.

Eric Reid, Acting PVC Facility Manager, is coordinating with the National Mustang Association, of Utah, The Humane Society of the United States and the Northern Nevada Correctional Center to obtain the materials.

As new information is available on the progress of the shade structures, BLM will post updates to www.blm.gov/whb
