Event description

Description

      • For centuries wild mustangs have roamed the West, inspiring legends and fueling the expansion of both native tribes and American settlers. There were once and estimated two million wild horses. Now only about 70,000 remain, preserved by federal law in a quixotic management system that is spending billions of tax payer dollars to round up wild horses and store them in government pastures -- an approach no one much likes but that has so far defied all solutions. How did we get into this situation, and is there any way out?

      • Pulitzer Prize-winning author and national correspondent for The New York Times, Dave Philipps, will outline the history and myth of the wild horse, how both helped create the current debacle, what science can tell us about sustainable ways to preserve the wild horse, and some of the last wild places in the west where the herds live.
