The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Visitor Center in Missoula is a great place to visit while in the area. Grab a latte and head there to check it out! It’s a beautiful center. Not only do they have amazing displays, but you can shop, speak with the staff about the area, and learn about the importance that elk carry for us in this region.
They are open year round and it’s free.
For big kids and youth, the interactive displays are really neat to experience. They have great art to purchase for a gift or keepsake on your trip through or to Missoula.
The RMEF is located at 5705 Grant Creek Road in Missoula, Montana.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation permanently protects crucial elk winter and summer ranges, migration corridors, calving grounds and other vital areas, while focusing on securing and improving hunter access throughout elk country. They also work to reestablish elk herds in historic ranges where the habitat and human cultural tolerance create a high potential for self-sustaining herds.
Elk are beautiful animals and many of our staff support the efforts of RMEF.
Opening and securing public access is a key component of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s mission, just as it is for us with the Clark Fork watershed.
Since 1984, RMEF has opened, secured or improved public access to more than 1.2 million acres of elk habitat across the country for hunters, hikers, anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy!
