Stay tuned for additional fund raising events! 

Our fund raising efforts help us provide enhanced habitat for elk and other wildlife in Pennsylvania's elk country.  Remember, all the money we raise for habitat stays right here in Pennsylvania!!   Help us grow, step up and be a part of one of our banquets.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an important part of our mission.  Volunteer work weekend took place at the Elk Mountain Homestead recently.  A fun and productive weekend  of working side by side with your fellow lovers of Elk Country can be a rewarding experience.  Young volunteers are the future of Elk Country and are always welcome to pitch in. Upcoming dates will be announced when they are available. For more information click here.
