Come and learn about the experimental elk release in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Elk have been extinct in NC and TN for approximately 150 years, but they roam again now in the valleys of Cataloochee in Western NC. We will view elk and their behaviors during the mating season, hear bugling, and learn how researchers track and monitor elk in the Smokies.
Meet at the Cataloochee Ranger Station. Additional information enclosed. Teachers seeking in-service credit should call us (865-974-0150) after class ends.
