Visit The National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole, WY
The National Elk Refuge is one of Jackson Hole’s top attractions. In the early 1900′s president Roosevelt established the National Elk Refuge to preserve the area’s wildlife, plants and fish. 2012 marks their centennial and they are very excited to bring new guests to experience these great lands. Join us for a winter vacation in Jackson Hole and don’t miss your opportunity to see America’s only National Elk Refuge.
The centennial celebration is an exciting time for the National Elk Refuge. They had a ceremony to commemorate its 100 year anniversary with fantastic speakers, live music, and an epic impersonation and speech from former president Teddy Roosevelt. The director of the United States Fish & Wildlife Service Dan Ashe, Governor Matt Mead, and the beautiful a capella voices of the Bar J Wranglers let the whole crowd in singing happy birthday for the great park.
The National Elk Refuge serves as a tourist attraction as well as a safe place for the elk and other Jackson Hole wildlife to feed during the cold winter months in Wyoming. Having a safe place to graze keeps these animals out of the local ranches and farms. The National Elk Refuge doesn’t confine these large animals. There is plenty of space for them to roam and live normal lives.
