MISSOULA, Mont.—Since Theodore Roosevelt appointed Gifford Pinchot to the job in 1898, the chief of the U.S. Forest Service has been one of America’s most important conservation positions. For the past 26 years, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has been working with this agency and its top forester to ensure a vital part of our national outdoor heritage—elk and elk hunting.
An estimated four-fifths of the elk in the U.S. spend all or part of their lives on national forests and grasslands. Most elk hunting occurs on Forest Service lands, too.
RMEF and its partners, together with the Forest Service, have helped to enhance habitat for elk and other wildlife on over 2.5 million acres of national forest lands—an area larger than Yellowstone National Park. Most of this success can be credited to RMEF volunteers who raise and allocate funding for conservation projects all across elk country.
