Sponsored by a generous grant from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Fish and Wildlife Techniques class, led by professors Valorie Titus (natural resource management) and Jim Harding (natural resources management), journeyed to Benezette, Penn. to learn about the Pennsylvania elk herd and the management behind this successful program. Students were guided by Tim Foster, senior regional director for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, who introduced the class to the region’s beautiful elk viewing areas. The class was also fortunate to meet and chat with local biologists and conservation officers on how they work with the elk, education, tourism and hunting throughout the year.
