Can see elk almost everyday close to the road. So watch for cars to be parked along the road and sometimes stopped in the road as people get out to take pictures.

Lots of "stuffed" animals. Good information on the local elk and where to see them. We did go back to where they said in the evening and saw several elk. Definitely worth the stop.

Very nicely done education center. There are many displays and quite a few displays encourage you to handle them. There's a collection of plaster cast of tracks and pelts from the local wild life among other things.
