Celebrate 100 years of elk in Michigan Sept. 8

The DNR will celebrate 100 years of elk in Michigan with a special event Saturday, Sept. 8. The fun begins at 5 p.m. at the downtown pavilion in Gaylord. Enjoy snacks from Gourmet Gone Wild while conservation leaders talk about the importance of wildlife management.

In 1918, seven elk from the Western United States were released near Wolverine to re-establish Michigan’s elk population. Join us in celebrating the success of this conservation effort over the last century.
