Rocky Mtn Elk Foundation

The Upper Valley Chapter of RMEF's fundraising banquet planning committee is heavily comprised of EOC Members. The REMF's mission is Ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. RMEF works with partners to permanently protect quality elk range, migration corridors and calving areas while seeking to open or improve quality public access opportunities. Conservation tools include land acquisitions and exchanges, voluntary
conservation agreements, contributions and other means. Quality habitat (food, water, cover and space) is essential to ensuring the future of elk and other wildlife. RMEF and its partners provide financial support to carry out prescribed burning, forest thinning, noxious weed treatments, the establishment of wildlife water developments and other projects to enhance elk habitat.

Additionally, RMEF provides grants for wildlife management and research. Opening and securing quality public access lies at the heart of the RMEF mission. Since 1984, RMEF has opened, secured or improved public access to more than 1.5 million acres of elk habitat across the country for hunters, hikers, anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy.

Funds raised at these banquets help fulfill these missions as well as provide grants to local organizations to promote our outdoor sporting heritage. EOC has been very fortunate to receive grants for the past several years. These grants have allowed us to purchase equipment, classroom furnishings, etc. The banquet is held on the last Saturday in April each year. If you are interested in attending or helping, please contact Kevin or Peg Howard at or 603-523-7677.
