View Utah's wild horses in their natural habitat with the Onaqui Catalogue Foundation. You'll learn about Utah's most iconic wild horse herd and how community-based citizen science is being used to document and share information about individual horses, behavior, social structures, foal births, and herd management. We'll start with a two-hour classroom session, then on Saturday, we'll meet at the entrance of the Onaqui Herd Management Area (HMA) located near Dugway, UT on a quest to observe and catalogue the horses in the wild.
Class Sections For Utah's Onaqui Wild Horse Herd (LLPOT 957)
Fall 2022 Section 1, Starting on: 10/06/2022
This is an in-person class taught by Samantha Couper and Theresa Orison. The first meeting takes place at the University Connected Learning and Continuing Education building (540 Arapeen Drive, SLC). The second session meets at the entrance to the Herd Management Area (HMA), about a 1.5-hour drive from Salt Lake City. Specific directions will be given to registered participants in the first meeting. The main road on the HMA is packed dirt/loose gravel and generally very dusty. Please be sure you have a spare tire for your vehicle. This trip may require some light hiking. Binoculars, a spotting scope, or cameras with zoom lenses are encouraged (the instructor will provide a scope and binoculars for participants to share). Class is limited to 10.
