Elk to Benefit from New Agreement

Laramie, Wy – New deals between the Rocky Mountain Elk
Foundation and two federal agencies have cleared the way for habitat improvement projects across 260 thousand acres in Montana and Wyoming.
The agreements among the foundation, the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management were signed today. They affect 174 thousand acres west of Pinedale, Wyoming.
The foundation will serve as a contractor and arrange habitat work with forest restoration and timber companies as subcontractors.
Conservation organizations also will help.
Funding will come from the federal sale of wood products.
