The Elk Are Back: The Reintroduction of Elk in NC
October 5, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
If you haven’t had a chance to hear the elk bugling during rut season, you are missing out on one of nature’s most amazing songs. As the population of elk grows since their re-introduction into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the bugling can be heard as the bulls try to achieve dominance. After years of absence, the elk have been returned to their native lands and the herd size has steadily increased. Join us to learn how the NC Wildlife Resources Commission and NC Wildlife Federation worked together to return these majestic animals to the wilds of North Carolina, and how you can enjoy these impressive creatures.
