Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Wildlife Leadership Awards

The mission of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife and their habitat. Part of that mission includes education. We realize the importance of education to the future of wildlife: today's informed public will leave a legacy of habitat for tomorrow's wildlife.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's Wildlife Leadership Awards program was established in 1991 to "recognize, encourage and promote leadership among future wildlife management professionals." The awards are sponsored in part by John and Sue McMorrough in memory of their son, Matthew.
