Refuge Sleigh Rides Continue

sleigh rides

Despite the end to the supplemental feeding program next week, refuge officials point out that the horse–drawn rides on the National Elk Refuge are to continue through Saturday, April 6th.  As Refuge Biologist Eric Cole had indicated earlier, elk do not immediately leave the refuge when feeding ends, but tend to linger for sometime thereafter.  Furthermore, Refuge Spokesperson Lori Iverson says wagons can be substituted for sleighs when inadequate snow remains in the area. The rides are a popular way for people to view elk, enjoy the refuge, and watch for other wildlife. Hours of operation for those rides are from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm daily, including weekends. Tickets are sold at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center, on North Cache Street in Jackson, and those taking the rides have the opportunity there to learn more about the animals that make up the herd they are about to see.
