RMEF is an organization dedicated to improving and preserving habitat primarily elk habitat. A very high percentage of the Funds donated or generated go directly to this cause. Members are an extremely dedicated group.

One should not miss this museum in Missoula. Try to guess all the wildlife in the outstanding display of wildlife in a natural setting. A very clean and informative small museum. A visit helps the foundation.

This is a museum type setting, with a great gift shop too! Beautifully mounted elk trophies and displays make it an great educational experience for people to learn about the conservation efforts of the RMEF. We spent over an hour there, and could have stayed longer if our schedule permitted. Bring a camera!

On our nature walk around the grounds we encountered a nice whitetail buck. The kids enjoyed walking around and reading the many signs. The stroller needed to be carried during parts of the unpaved walk but we did not mind. The museum was fun.
