“We count on our annual convention to rally and energize our members and supporters, and to charge our battery for another year of wildlife habitat conservation projects across elk country,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO.
In 2010, RMEF passed the 5.9 million acre mark for habitat conserved and enhanced nationwide, and helped launched elk restoration initiatives in Missouri and Virginia.
