How You Can Help

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!

Interested in starting your own advocacy group?  Partnerships have proven to be a big part of our success.

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 scar 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!
