Elk Country Visitor CenterNow Open

Fun and interactive, our exhibits invite you to learn more about elk, elk country and the role RMEF plays in conservation. Discover the diverse wildlife that calls elk country home, explore the role we all play in conserving habitat, and connect with the rich heritage that makes the outdoors so important to so many of us. Along the way, you'll hear elk bugle, test your knowledge of wildlife, identify animal tracks, feel the weight of an elk antler, and enjoy wildlife conservation films. Other highlights include an impressive display of trophy elk mounts, our gift shop and outdoor walking trail.
