American Mustangs Celebrated at Camp Wildfire

Fort Worth, Texas, June 1, 2010 – Youth in Dallas, Fort Worth and the surrounding area are set to experience an exciting summer as members of Camp Wildfire, August 12-13, at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.

Funded through a grant from the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, youth ages 9 and older are invited to take part in two days of activities that center around the stewardship of the land and protection of the wild horse.

The program will focus on National Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee Velma “Wild Horse Annie” Johnston and will feature an opportunity to learn from professional horse trainers involved in the $100,000 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover at the Will Rogers Memorial Equestrian Center. Each camp participant will receive a souvenir t-shirt, backpack and camera, as well as tickets to a Supreme Extreme evening performance.

Cost for the program is an affordable $10 for both days to include lunch. Scholarships are available. Activities will begin each day at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.

For more information, please contact the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame at 817.569.8967 or go to cowgirl.net.

About the Bureau of Land Management

The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
