BLM announced yesterday that it had issued a Special Recreation Permit to Black Rock City LLC for Burning Man, to be held on public lands near Gerlach, NV. The festival will run from 08/26/18 through 09/03/18.
The permit allows up to 70,000 participants on approximately 4400 acres, for a population density of 15,909 humans per thousand acres.
As for the wild horses and burros that surround the place, they’ll probably just keep their heads down and avoid the chaos, trying to carry on their legacy at an average density of one animal per thousand acres.
