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.

The RMEF Elk Country Visitor Center created its wildlife diorama, taxidermy, interactive touch screens and displays, and other features to appeal to all ages and offer education about elk and conservation. Visitors other than organized youth groups and schools requesting a private tour do not need to make reservations to visit the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

We offer educational tours for groups of more than 10 for schools and youth groups, ages 6 to 17. Depending on the number of youth, tours are typically designed to last 45 minutes to an hour and include one age-appropriate activity.
