MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation caps National Volunteer Week by saluting the foundation of its 30-year-old organization—its volunteer army of more than 10,000 strong across the country.

“RMEF is what it is today because of our volunteers,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “They are an on-the-ground force that commits their time, talents and energy to ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.”

RMEF recognized its volunteers during National Volunteer Week by giving away seven trips-for-2 to its national convention, Elk Camp, scheduled for December 4-7 in Las Vegas. Winners receive two full registrations and four nights free lodging at The Mirage. Go here for Elk Camp registration information.

“Our volunteers have what can be accurately described as a real ‘get ‘er done’ attitude. Not only do they raise funds for elk and elk country in their own backyards through banquet and membership drives, but they put on their boots for fence pulls, noxious weed treatments, elk collaring and a variety of other hands-on efforts,” added Allen.

Making up more than 500 chapters nationwide, RMEF volunteers helped to protect or enhance more than 6.4 million acres, open or secure public access to more than 707,000 acres and complete more than 8,600 permanent land protection, habitat stewardship, elk restoration, conservation education and hunting heritage projects.
