Colorado is known for its natural beauty and variety of landscapes. If you like the desert, we have that. If you like the plains, we have that, too. If you want to wander through the forest, Colorado is the perfect state. Unfortunately, some people forget that these areas are more than recreational. These beautiful lands are home to countless elk, mule deer, rabbits, and the elusive grouse (I’ll get you someday!). Thankfully, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is working hard to preserve Colorado elk habitats and has just granted the state over $1.1 million.

“This funding is available to go back on the ground in Colorado only because of our volunteers who plan and host banquets and other events. We sincerely appreciate their diligent efforts that so greatly benefit conservation,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO.
RMEF Rounds Up $1.1 Million For Colorado Elk Habitats
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has done it again, raising a total of $1,126,750 for projects in Colorado. The funds will target 10 counties (Chaffee, Delta, El Paso, Grand, Gunnison, Larimer, Las Animas, Mesa, Moffat, Routt) and the state as a whole. These projects include controlled burns, invasive weed management, and improving access to water for forest residents.
