Grant money targeted to improve the quality of elk habitat

CLARKSTON, WA - Montana based organization Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is giving grants to eleven different counties in the state of Washington in an effort to improve elk country.

The grants totaling more than $190,000, are being used to fight invasive weeds and forest areas that overtake elk habitat. Asotin, Garfield and Lewis counties are just a few of the areas that will see prescribed burns, forest thinning and spraying for noxious weeds.

RMEF is a conservation team that works to protect elk habitat across more than 6.3 million acres of land across the country.
