North-Central California is prime elk country.

More specifically, about 70 miles northwest of Sacramento, it’s prime habitat for tule elk.

Its also where the Rocky Mountain elk Foundation acquired and permanently protected what were previously 231 privately-held acres, but is now in the public’s hands for all to access and enjoy.

the transaction also improved public access as it stitched together existing parcels of surrounding Bureau of Land Management land that provide key year-round range and calving grounds for more than 100 elk.

The landscape features moderate slopes rising to 1,500 feet in elevation, open flats of grassland and shrubs, trees, and vital riparian habitat thanks to Indian Creek, Cache Creek, and a small pond that support elk, deer, quail, turkey and other wildlife.

Opening and improving public access lies at the heart of RMEF’s conservation mission.
