Friends of a Legacy recently received a $10,000 grant from the Flying V Donor Advised Fund held by the Wyoming Community Foundation.
“We’re most grateful to the foundation for supporting our efforts to protect and preserve the wild horses of the McCullough Peaks,” FOAL president Warren Murphy said. “The funds will allow us to continue to develop a sustainable organization that champions an understanding of a matchless cultural icon and symbol of the character of Wyoming’s citizens.”
FOAL is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the mustangs and their habitat, enhancing the environment for all wildlife and collaborating with BLM to manage the range. Since its founding in 2005, the organization has launched projects to develop water sources in the peaks and to implement a fertility control program that will help control the herd size and reduce the need for future roundups.
In addition, FOAL purchased 160 acres adjacent to the BLM range along the Greybull Highway, 26 miles east of Cody, that features a newly installed trail with interpretive signs. Future plans call for the construction of a visitor center at the location.
