PM Hot Topic CWH

PM Hot Topic Recap – Corolla Wild Horses
Thank you to our members–both Property Management and Sales who attended yesterday’s PM Hot Topic.

CWHF CEO Jo Langone, Herd Manager Meg Pucket & volunteer Kelly Wilkes stopped by to give an update on the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. We are excited to learn that CWHF will be opening their rehabilitation farm to the public this fall. In addition, the Fund will be moving away from giving tours and focusing more on educating tourists and locals about the safety of Corolla’s unique Colonial Spanish Mustangs.

Since early 2018, these women have worked tirelessly on creating a new campaign focused on valuable education that features a toolkit with videos, images, and more. This toolkit is available to all property management and sales companies.

The staff at CWHF are happy to stop by your office to give a short presentation on this informative and helpful toolkit. For more information please contact CEO Jo Langone at 252-453-8002. And please remember–these unique horses are one of the reasons that tourists visit and new people move to the OBX. It is important to keep them safe!
