Photo Feature: A Tour of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Visitor Center

Discover the beauty of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Elk Country Visitor Center in Missoula, Montana.

I recently spent time in one of my favorite places — Montana — where I visited the headquarters of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), and in particular, its Elk Country Visitor Center. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful, on the outskirts of Missoula, and also featuring a half-mile walking trail that illustrates what elk need for prime habitat. Overall, the entire experience is family-oriented and geared toward teaching the next generation about conservation and management.

I hope you enjoy this tour in photos. All photos, with the exception of the bear selfie, by Jason Baird.

Admission is free. Hours vary, but generally run from 8 or 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Check the website.
