Volunteer group helps maintain public & wild horse safety

  WHPL Organizes "Strieter Cleanup Day"
Story date: November, 2003

When the Nevada Dept. of Transportation (NDOT) agreed to install Strieter-Lite reflectors along a section of US-50 to prevent wild horse and wildlife accidents, the Wild Horse Preservation League agreed to help maintain them. The reflectors were installed along a three mile section of highway in the "Mark Twain" area as a safety experiment. (Please see link below for details.)

The WHPL also agreed to be responsible for collecting litter along the same stretch of highway.

This partnership serves as a good example of how private organizations and the state can provide maintenance of safety devices and help maintain trash free roadways at virtually no cost to state taxpayers.
