    Summit Dates:  October 6-8, 2020

    We are announcing a Summit on Free Roaming Equids and Ecosystem Sustainability to be held this year in Cody, Wyoming, at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West ( ). This meeting is a follow-up to the successful 2019 Summit held in Reno, Nevada.  Our purpose is to develop stakeholder-based comprehensive communication strategies and processes to manage free-roaming equids in concert with other public lands multiple-use objectives to achieve western rangeland ecosystem sustainability.  During the Summit, participants will receive updates from the FREES network, working group progress, new research, and policy developments. We will learn more from representatives of our host state of Wyoming about challenges and successes in their great state.  All of this information will be used to continue to develop action plans towards our goal of Healthy Herds on Healthy Rangelands

    FREES seeks to enhance communication and engage diverse stakeholder groups in meaningful dialogue as we work together.

    Please plan to attend. We are planning on live and virtual options.  

    Check back, we will add information as it becomes available.
