The Living Waters Initiative

The McCullough Peaks is called a "high plains desert" because of the scarcity of precipitation.  Small reservoirs have proven effective for capturing snow and rain runoff, thus providing life-giving water for the wild horses, cattle, and other wildlife inhabiting this vast dry area.

FOAL's 10-year "Living Water Initiative" will restore and maintain at least 20 strategically located reservoirs, which in turn spreads the herd and prevents overgrazing in any one area of the Peaks.  <Learn More>

FOAL has already contributed $20,000 towards restoration of the "Lotus" and "Swede" Reservoirs, but we need your help to fulfill our mission.

Find out how FOAL teamed up with the local Bureau of Land Management office to ensure the McCullough Peaks mustangs remain wild and free.

The key to wildlife population control isn't in culling out the existing population but in addressing its reproduction.

Your donation of time, talent, and monetary gifts are greatly appreciated.  FOAL welcomes other dedicated volunteers!

In the News

The McCullough Peaks are located 12 to 27 miles east of Cody, Wyoming and encompass 120,412 acres of land. The best grazing is found south of the rugged peaks where the terrain turns into grass and sage covered prairie.

Please Remember!

It is important that when visiting the Peaks you stay on the existing roads. Due to the fragile nature of the environment, any new tire tracks will scare the landscape forever.

Also, please stay at least 500 feet away from the horses.  When they become too habituated to people, they have the tendency to venture too close.  Any harm to humans might result in the horse being euthanized by the BLM.

Thank you for your cooperation!
