National Elk Refuge Wildlife Viewing Excursions
National Elk Refuge winter naturalists lead a free wildlife excursion at 1:30 PM each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday during the winter season. The excursions depart from the visitor center and stop at various refuge locations where animals such as elk, bighorn sheep, and waterfowl can frequently be seen. A spotting scope and binoculars are provided on the tours. Participants enjoy accompanying a naturalist to learn more about refuge history and wildlife management other than in a traditional visitor center setting. Reservations are required for the 2 – 2.5 hour educational tour and can be made by calling 307.734.9378 or signing up in person at the visitor center. The wildlife excursion is free of charge.
