RMEF Hosts Interactive Elk Migration Display

A collaborative effort by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the National Geographic Society has generated an interactive exhibit now on display at RMEF headquarters in Missoula that shows the year-around migration of elk across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The exhibit, titled Invisible Boundaries, is a highly interactive exhibit created by National Geographic and based on years of scientific data. “This is an amazing exhibit that follows the migration routes of nine different elk herds throughout the Yellowstone region,“ said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “We appreciate the good folks at National Geographic in allowing us to host this display and we encourage everyone to come check it out.“ Added Chris Johns, Beyond Yellowstone program leader for the National Geographic Society, “The Invisible Boundaries exhibit ended up at the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation because that’s where it belongs. RMEF is about elk and education and helping people understand the intricacies and wonder of elk.“ RMEF is located at 5705 Grant Creek Road in Missoula.
