Celebrating a Century
The National Elk Refuge celebrated its centennial in 2012.

The National Elk Refuge was established by various Acts of Congress, executive orders, and other documents to provide, preserve, restore, and manage lands for wintering elk, birds, and other big game animals. The main Act of Congress on August 10, 1912 set aside lands “for the establishment of a winter game (elk) reserve in the State of Wyoming, lying south of the Yellowstone Park . . .”

This set of photographs highlight some of the centennial events held in 2012.
